DHL Express

DHL Express offers fast delivery to many countries across the world.

DHL Express is not available for deliveries in the following regions:
 Africa, China, Mexico, Russia, South America.

DHL Express does not have limits on box sizes and weights (though it does need to be able to fit through the doors of a plane). DHL fees are determined primarily by package size, followed by weight. Therefore if you are ordering a small item DHL could be the cheapest shipping option for you.
 Eg 1 - If an order to Korea fits a size 7 box but when packed only weighs 3kg it will cost 3,450 yen.
 Eg 2 - If an order to Korea fits a size 1 box but when packed weighs 3kg it will cost 1,750 yen.

Please be aware that DHL Express does not accept items for deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Japanese national holidays. Therefore if you pay for an item on Friday it might not be collected for a few days.

Shipping Time: Usually within one week (may be longer if subject to customs inspection)

EMS (Express Mail Service)

Due to its high speed, reliability and wide availability, EMS is a highly recommended shipping option. Though it is more expensive than SAL, your items have a higher priority when shipping so will reach you much faster.

Though EMS is available in most countries, there are certain areas not covered. You can check if your area can receive EMS deliveries on the Japan Post website here:
"Express Mail Service(EMS) - List of Countries and Areas".

EMS packages have a much higher weight and size limit than SAL SP. Though it varies from country to country, the maximum weight limit is usually 20-30kg so you can often fit all of your order into a single box.
The maximum box size is often 300cm. This size limit is for the longest length ('a' in the image below) plus the remaining circumference ('b' to 'e' in the image below). The longest dimension often has a maximum length of 150cm, though like the maximum size limit this varies from country to country.
You can check the size and weight limits for your area on the Japan Post website here:
Express Mail Service(EMS) - List of EMS Size and Weight Limits

You can find out more about the EMS shipping method, including shipping costs, at the Japan Post website here: "International Mail (EMS)".

Shipping Time: Usually within one to two weeks depending on destination (may be longer if subject to customs inspection)

SAL SP (SAL Small Packet Registered)

SAL Small Packet Registered is usually the cheapest shipping method, but the delivery times are also the most unpredictable. This is mainly because SAL SP items are only put on planes as room becomes available. Therefore depending on the airport your items are sent from, they may be waiting for a while until space is allocated for them. In some cases this may take weeks or even months. If you would like your items faster, we recommend selecting a different shipping method.

SAL SP is not available to all countries. On the Japan Post website there is a list of countries that can receive SAL SP deliveries ("Countries with Economy Air (SAL) Service") but this list does not specify which countries are 'Registered SAL'.

* If your country is not supported by SAL SP, some stores may be able to send your order by Airmail Registered. If you would like to request this option, please do so in the comment section at the checkout.

SAL SP packages have a weight and size limit. Though it varies from country to country, the maximum weight limit is usually 2kg. The maximum box size is 90cm in its three outer dimensions (length + width + height). The longest dimension can have a maximum length of 60cm.

You can find out more about the SAL Small Packet Registered shipping method, including shipping costs, at the Japan Post website here: "Economy Air (SAL)".

Shipping Time: Usually within one month (may be longer if subject to customs inspection)

SAL PP (SAL Postal Parcel Registered)

SAL PP is a the cheapest shipping method for bigger and heavier packages, but the delivery times are also very unpredictable. This is mainly because SAL PP items are only put on planes as room becomes available. Therefore depending on the airport your items are sent from, they may be waiting for a while until space is allocated for them. In some cases this may take weeks or even months. If you would like your items faster, we recommend selecting a different shipping method.

The maximum box size is often 300cm. This size limit is for the longest length ('a' in the image below) plus the remaining circumference ('b' to 'e' in the image below).

The maximum box size is 90cm in its three outer dimensions (length + width + height). The longest dimension can have a maximum length of 60cm.

If you would like to have your order shipped by Air SP, please mention this in the comments section of your order and wait for it to be updated before paying.
