Help and Frequently Asked Questions
|Do I have to pay sales tax?|
|In general no. Orders that are shipped outside of Japan are NOT subject to Japanese sales tax - though you may be subject to import duties/customs charges once the order reaches your country, in accordance with local laws and legislation. If your order is to be shipped within Japan, the standard Japanese sales tax (消費税) will be added to the cost of your order.|

|When will my credit card be charged?|
|If your card is authorised, payment will be taken immediately, and you will receive an email confirming that your order has been successful. If your card is not authorised, payment will not be taken, so please contact your bank or card issuer to find out why they wouldn't authorise the payment.
Please remember that even if a payment isn’t authorised, it may look like we have still taken the money as some card issuers may still reserve the money, for a short period of time. Further, successful payments sometimes take a short time to appear on your statement, so please do not worry if the authorised payment does not show up right away.
|Do you have a catalogue?|
|Although we produce infrequent information and promotional leaflets, we do not have a catalogue as such. With so many items to choose from and with new products added all the time, it would be impossible to keep up if we did.
Instead we put all our energy into providing you with a website where you can shop 24 hours, 7 days a week, where we can show you what the items look like both in detailed pictures and informative videos.
