Customs fees and taxes may be applied to packages sent from Japan.
We have no control over the application of these fees but it happens more generally for expensive items.
There is no real trick to avoid them, but in our experience, large parcels sent by EMS have more chance to be taxed.

These fees and taxes are at the charge of the customer, and we are not responsible for it.

If you chose the EMS delivery method or request the tracking number option, you can always check where your package is. If it is blocked somewhere or if it is waiting for you at a point of withdrawal, it will be indicated on the tracking site of the carrier concerned. In any case if your address of delivery have no mistake, you should receive your parcel without problem. It is probably that your parcel is a little late but remember to check eventual notices of passage and to contact your post office if the delay becomes too long. The parcels do not disappear and, in the very rare situation where they are returned to us, we will contact you as soon as you receive the packet to plan a return after having studied the reason for non-distribution.

Considering the high prices of international shipping fees, we do not accept the exchange or return of packages shipped outside of Japan. Before each shipment we confirm with you that each item is in perfect condition before shipping it to you. If an item happens to be in poor condition, please contact us immediately. You must report a claim to the nearest post office.
