COVID-19 Shipping Update

Well, after updating the website and switching to Shopify, we didn’t expect this to be the first blog.

Japan has placed shipping restrictions on international packages, including fully ending its SAL shipments as of April 2, 2020. (SAL is an inexpensive way to ship packages, although it can take 2-4 weeks to arrive.)

Therefore, due to new COVID-19 restrictions, we are no longer able to offer low cost SAL service and are switching to airmail and increasing prices to reflect this.

Information directly from Japan Post:
