FAQ

About Order

How long does it take for the shipment? And what is the shortest delivery time?


It takes 7 days to prepare for shipping, including final inspection, certificate issuance, and product delivery.
The date of receipt (in Japan) should be at least 7 days or later from the date of ordering.




Can I leave Japan at any time after receiving the product?


The certificate required for export has an expiration date of 14 days from the date of issuance, and the goods must leave (be exported) within this validity period. In other words, after deducting 7 days for our preparation and delivery, the customer is required to depart from Japan with the goods in the next 7 days after receiving it. If any unavoidable changes in your schedule, please contact us at your earliest convenience.
