Shipping Methods and Info:
All Orders: ship by Post Office from Japan.
Small orders less than $10: MINIMUM ORDER IS $10. I’m sorry but I will refund all orders less than $10 (not including shipping).
Small orders $10-$54.99): These orders normally go by international small packet air mail which usually takes 7-10 days, sometimes more. Cost is very reasonable, service is reliable, but can take 10 days or more. There is no tracking for small packet shipping. EMS fast shipping is available, pay further down this page.
Large Orders ($55 and over): All orders $55 and over (total not including shipping) will ship via EMS. EMS service is fast, usually 3-4 days depending on your location, and it has tracking.
Problem Counties: For Canada, Germany, France and South Africa we highly recommend EMS shipping for speed. To these and some other countries, non-EMS can take 4-6 weeks or more. If you’re not in a hurry and are willing to be patient we will ship by non-EMS. South and Central American countries should also ship by EMS if you’re in a hurry. See below for EMS extra cost on small orders.
ORDERS TO CANADA- Canada Post has started a policy of delaying our small orders going by regular airmail. Regular airmail can take 4-6 weeks. EMS is very fast so if you’re in a hurry make sure you get EMS fast shipping.
NO ORDERS TO BRAZIL- sorry we’ve had way too many problems shipping there.
EMS Extra Payment for Small Orders - You can get fast EMS shipping on small orders by paying $15 extra below. Please note, you can add this payment to the shopping cart, or you can pay separately. Paying separately will avoid extra tax where some countries tax the shipping. If you pay separately, the EMS payment will not show on the order’s invoice, so you won’t have to pay tax on it.

In a Rush? - No matter what country you are in, if you want EMS and your order is smaller than $55, you can pay the extra $15 and get EMS. See above for EMS payment.
Shipping Cost Chart:
Shipping Costs are calculated based on the following chart:
On the left is the percentage shipping cost according to which price range an order’s total value falls in on the right. In simple terms this means that the more you buy, the lower your shipping rate. In some cases we might have to ask for more, or we might refund some shipping. Sorry Paypal doesn’t give us many choices in the price ranges so I average it out the best I can.
I try to keep shipping cost as low as possible, while making the shipping charge pay for my actual shipping cost plus packaging. Unfortunately with Paypal’s shipping calculations it’s not always possible to automatically charge a fair shipping price on some very large orders. In those cases I will issue a partial shipping refund.
Because shipping costs do change over time, I have to adjust this chart from time to time.
