Update on international shipping from Japan Post

Tue, Dec 21st 2021, 16:48:04
Dear customer, 

Here's the latest information on international shipping from Japan Post as of December 21

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. You can check Japan Post's page below to see what option is available for you.


If you're shipping a parcel to the European Union, please also check this page.

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

- Small Packet (Air): longer than EMS, for some countries it may take around 2 months

- International Parcel(Surface): around 3 months

- Small Packet(Surface): around 3 months

All option except SAL is available, but we recommend FedEx or DHL.

EMS, FedEx, DHL, International Parcel (Air), Small Packet (Air) is available. Could use Surface but use them at your own risk. It may take longer than 3 months and have the highest risk of getting lost in transit in the current situation without compensation.
