Shipping and Taxes

1. Shipment

Once your order is processed, your purchase will be dispatched within 3 to 5 working days. You'll receive a shipping confirmation mail, which includes information such as tracking number, at that time.

All products are dispatched from Japan by airmail or a private carrier in the following list ( DHL ). Please consult the Shipping and Delivery page for a list of countries we ship to, as well as what to do if your country is not on the list.


2. Shipping cost

Shipping costs vary according to the parcel's weight and the shipment method of your choice.

To get a shipping estimate, simply add desired items to your cart, and shipping cost choices will be displayed under the section "Get shipping estimates", after entering your country and zip code. The shipping fee displayed at check-out is only valid for an order placed on our site. These fees may vary according to the situation (professional order and return option). Changes in the shipping method may also occur in the case of voluminous order.

We also have a free shipping offer to most countries on orders that qualify, click here for more details about that discount.

We offer free shipping for orders over 130 USD to most countries.
