Amazon Order Address Change
Sunday, 03 February 2013
Now that we are comfortably moved into a new place, we would like to speed up the Amazon process a bit by having things comes directly to us rather than routing through my in-laws and retrieving them once or twice a week.
So, if you would please take note of the new shipping address on the Amazon Japan Ordering Page and change it in your Amazon Japan account settings, that would be great.
Of course, if you happen to have something still sent to them, it's not a problem, it will just continue to take sometimes up to a week before the package makes it's way from there to here. We understand that everyone, especially many existing customers, may not visit the front page directly, so we will begin making notes in requests as orders arrive at my in-laws rather than here so everyone can make the transition.

Those of you that have been here for awhile know of the yearly Japan shipping blackout.
For those of you unfamiliar, it starts NOW due to the New Year holiday.
Regular shipping will be available once again from January 7th. As always, if we already have items here for you, hang tight and they will go out ASAP. If you have items on the way, well, we probably will not be getting them for awhile!

Well, not exactly...
Some (most) of you may have noticed that I have been pretty slow with anything site related these past couple of months.
Sorry about that! >_<
Long story short, not only was our daughter born a couple of months ago, but I was also given a promotion at my "real job" and have been super busy.
While I have kept up with most things on the site, I have very rarely kept up the proper level of communication about what the progress has been and I apologize for that.
Luckily, during my small amount of free time, I have been teaching my wife how to use the site and she has become pretty fair at it.
Beginning now, she should be able to do most things, including give status updates, place orders, quote prices, pack, ship, etc.
I do ask that you remember she is Japanese, so English is her second language. Please forgive her grammatical errors!
Below, you will find a brief message from you to get you off on the right foot!
Hello everyone! As Sam mentioned earlier, I'm still learning. So please forgive my mistakes and bear with me. Once I know how to operate everything I will be able to do better and I'll promise you I will do my best to satisfy you all, thank you! (●´∀｀●) - Ai
Items Including Batteries
Tuesday, 13 December 2011
Just a heads up to anyone planning on having anything with batteries forwarded. This includes Nintendo DS systems, Playstation Portables and Vitas, as well as PS3 Controllers and probably some other items that I am not thinking of off the top of my head.
New regulations about "hazardous materials" have caused Japan Post and the other large shipping services in Japan to refuse shipment of items with rechargeable batteries to the U.S.
Other countries can still receive these products, but only a limited number in a single package and ONLY via Surface Shipping.
When items with batteries are purchased and need to be shipped to the U.S., you will have two options from me.
The first (and least advisable) option is to simply attempt to have the items forwarded as normal. If they are not noticed, they will make it through the system and should not be an issue. If they are noticed, one of two things will happen. The package may be returned to me and the shipping fees will not be refunded. Alternatively, they may choose to remove the offending item and forward the remainder of the package.
The second (and obviously best) option is for me to remove the batteries myself and ship the item(s) without or even to simply remove the controller if it's a system. According to my friend, Mr. TheInternet, PS3 controller batteries are removable, but I can't say I am sure how easy it is to find replacements. I have found that new replacement... Read more...

Any links to this site are greatly appreciated! There are a few small banner images located in this forum thread right now. If you would like a different size, just let me know and I will get something to you. Other banners are still being worked on as are the images for the upcoming slight redesign. ;)
The smaller links are perfect for forum signatures and the like, so if you would like to add it into your existing forum signatures, that would also be very helpful.
Those of you with your own sites that would like to work out a banner trade are more than welcome to inquire. I am currently in the process of adding an extra page which will have links to other sites that share our link and/or simply sites that I feel are useful or interesting.
Another way to help is to place orders through our Amazon links for item forwarding or even for items that go directly to you.
If you have not yet bookmarked our Amazon Japan affiliate link, please do so. We would really appreciate it! It doesn't only apply to items currently listed on the site, but absolutely... Read more...
