We ship every day, except on weekends and shipping holidays. The time it takes us to process and ship your order is typically 1-2 business days, also displayed on each product page under "Availability."

Before you place your order, we display the shipping methods which are available for your country so you can review and select the method which best suits your needs.

We are experiencing soaring shipping costs due to Japan Post's dramatic increase in international delivery prices, brought about by the Ukraine crisis and the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please be assured we have made every effort to keep the increase in our shipping charge minimum. We hope for better days to arrive soon. Thank you for your kind understanding.

Shipping Charges

Taxes and Duties

We do not charge you for any taxes, duties, VAT, brokerage, or customs fees. However, your country may impose such charges. We do not have customs information for other countries, and it is your responsibility to ensure that your order can be lawfully imported into your country and to pay for any applicable charges.


In the unlikely event that your purchase is not as described (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.) you may return it within 30 days from the date of shipment for a refund. If you need to return an item

  • Please pack it securely in the original product packaging.
  • Please remove all extra labels from the outside of the package.
  • Please ship your return package via insured post.


You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper. However, typically, you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days). We regret that shipping charges are not refundable.
