Shipping will be automatically calculated based on preset weight of each item. However, if total weight exceeds 2 kilograms, we are unable to preset shipping charge by default as it exceeds "small packet" category (except if you prefer Expedited International Shipping). Please checkout with "Overweight" shipping or contact us before you make any purchase (we can deal through PayPal invoice as well) and we will contact you separately with shipping charge over 2 kilograms. In addition, if the dimension (total of W x D x H) of parcel exceeds 90 centimeters, this also cause your parcel will be out of small packet category and needs to be shipped via EMS or international parcel which will be calculated separately. We will contact you in case for further arrangement.
We offer following shipping method: Unregistered SAL, Registered SAL, ePacket (Standard International Shipping), and EMS by Japan Post (Expedited International Shipping).
1. Economy International Shipping (SAL - Surface Air Lifted)
The cheapest shipping method. Delivery time may vary due to low priority handling but normally around 2 weeks or more. Insured amount is up to 6,000 JPY or the value claimed on customs declaration form if less than 6,000 JPY for lost or damaged packet. If you can accept all the risk, we can remove tracking option and deduct 400 JPY from the shipping cost. Please choose the option (unregistered SAL where available) when you checkout. Removing tracking will also remove insurance.
2. Standard International Shipping (ePacket)
Standard handling as same as international air mail. Delivery time is around a week. Recommended for small and light package as the shipping cost is not much difference from SAL and delivery time is shorter. Insured amount is up to 6,000 JPY for lost or damaged packet.
3. Expedited International Shipping (EMS by Japan Post)
Express shipping with the fastest delivery time. Insured amount is up to 20,000 JPY. Recommended when you purchase expensive train car set.
Resident of Japan will have different shipping table.
