Customs & Import Duties

Shipping products from Japan can be subject to custom fees and other taxes in the country of delivery. These fees have to be borne by the customer. Please contact your country's customs to confirm which products and from what amount such fees apply.

All documents required for customs clearance are inside the pouch attached to the parcel.

We are fully aware of your concerns about custom fees. Please understand that NIHON ICHIBAN ships products often available in Japan only at Japanese retail prices - giving you good value for money including all related costs.
