Last Updated: 1 October 2021
Please note that there are global delays and suspensions to certain shipping methods in certain areas.
Click here to confirm which shipping options are available to your country.

When shopping with Mandarake there are a few different shipping options for you to choose from. Each has their own pros and cons as well as different restrictions. Here we talk about our main shipping methods to help you choose the best way to send your items.

If you would like to know estimates for other shipping methods when you place your order, please mention this in the comment section of the checkout. If you wish to change the shipping method, be sure to contact us before you make your payment and await confirmation. (Orders cannot be changed once an order has been paid for)

Each shipping method has different levels of insurance available. Click here for more information about shipping insurance. As our shipping methods require signatures, if you contact the delivery company and request for the item to be left without a signature neither us nor the delivery companies will be liable for any loss or damages.

The shipping costs mentioned below are correct as of the date above, but are subject to change without notice. The countries/regions mentioned in the tables are provided by the shipping companies as a guide.

Please be aware that when buying items from abroad your order may be subject to import taxes, customs charges etc. As we have no control over these fees, you should contact your local post office or tax office for details.

If items are returned to us due to non-acceptance, we will hold them for a maximum of 10 days. They will be disposed of if you do not contact us within that time.

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, 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 but heavy item DHL could be the cheapest shipping option for you.
Eg 1 - If an order to Korea fits a size 1 box (our smallest box) but when packed weighs 3kg it will cost 2,380 yen.
Eg 2 - If an order to Korea fits a size 2 box (our biggest box) but when packed only weighs 3kg it will cost 12,560 yen.

Please be aware that DHL Express does not pick up items 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 and Airmail, 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 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'.

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 at the Japan Post website here:
"Economy Air (SAL)".
Please note that as SAL Small Packet and Air Small Packet items are not picked up from stores by the post office, we have to add a 100 yen surcharge to the original post office fee. This fee is included in the price chart below.

Shipping Time: Usually within one month, but has been known to be longer (may be even longer if subject to customs inspection)

Japan Post has added a new price band for the USA and its territories that will start on April 1, 2021. However there is no confirmation when this shipping method will resume.

Air SP packages have a weight and size limit, which includes the packing and not just the item. Though it may vary from country to country, the maximum weight 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.
