Update on international shipping from Japan Post
Fri, Jan 8th 2021, 16:47:23
We have updates from Japan Post about the shipping method available for certain countries below due to COVID-19 pandemic. Delays are expected for all shipping options including EMS. Unfortunately, they don't know how long it takes to have your package delivered because it depends on the number of flights available to your country from Japan. Below is the latest information as of January 8.
The next shipping date will be January 12 as Monday is a national holiday.
No SAL option is available for any country. We recommend FedEx or DHL over EMS. FedEx/DHL is the quickest shipping option at the moment because they have their own flights. Current delivery time frame is as follows.
- FedEx/DHL: 1 week to 10 days
- EMS: 2 weeks for most country, may take longer than 1 month for some country (e.g. UK and the Netherlands).
- International Parcel(Air): longer than EMS, for some countries it may take around 2 months

++++++ Extension of Storage Period ++++++
Given the unprecedented situation of COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to extend safekeeping period for orders that arrived in February and beyond. You don't need to pay for the storage fees for the orders that have arrived in February, March and April until postal situation gets back to normal.
You can make shipping request whenever you feel safe to do so. Until then, we keep your items safely but we don't extend safekeeping period now. If you want us to keep the items let the dates expire. When you want to actually ship items, make the shipping request and write in the comment box to remind us to extend the safekeeping period. That's when we extend the dates so you don't pay for any storage fees.
We hope that this information helps. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
