U.S. - Yes! Canada - Ah, well...

Posted

Hello!

I wanted to post an update regarding the state of international shipping from Japan. Shipments to the United States are largely back to normal. The insured EMS express is available again, and UPS services are also running smoothly. The problem is Canada. At present- the only way we can ship to Canada is uninsured airmail with no tracking. Japan Post is not offering the standard EMS service, UPS and Fedex will not ship to individual customers (only businesses) and other services are prohibitively expensive - say $400 to ship something that would usually cost $20 to ship.

Hopefully this will all get back to normal soon. We'll see!
