Shipping and Payment Information
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to receive an order?
It normally takes between 3 and 7 working days. If there is any special delay, such as when materials are out of stock in Japan, we will contact you. During the current emergency, orders are taking between 5 and 8 working days. If you have a need-by-date, please contact us first for stock availability, before placing orders.
Only part of my order has arrived. Why is this?
If the materials are in our warehouse, they will be sent out straight away. If we need to get them from the publisher’s warehouse, they will be sent out separately, and will usually arrive a couple of days later. This means your order may arrive in bits. Please don’t worry if this happens. If there is any problem or special delay, we will contact you by email.
Is there a shipping COD charge?
Shipping is free for orders of 5,000 yen or more after discount and before tax that are sent to a single location. There is a fixed shipping fee of 600 yen + 60 yen tax for smaller orders. There is a COD charge of 300 yen + 30 yen tax.
Only part of my order has arrived, will I have to pay extra shipping for the second delivery?
