Best Ways To Buy Goods From Japan
Love Japanese stuff? I do, too, and thats why I decided to live in Tokyo. But when I was living back home in Australia, it was difficult, if not impossible, to buy all the goods I wanted from Japan easily. Not everyone gets to live in Japan just because they like Japanese cosmetics, sushi, matcha, Evangelion or Hello Kitty, like I do.
So here is what I think is the 5 Best Ways to Buy Goods From Japan. Going to Japan is not the only way to purchase Japanese things of your dream. One word of caution before we start, though.
There are quite a lot of products out there that are made to look like Japanese. Ive met many people who paid a premium price for Japanese products that were produced by non-Japanese companies overseas. Even if Japanese companies are producers, many of them are also produced outside Japan.
If you dont mind where they are made, or who produces, as long as your ramen looks like Japanese, thats okay, too. But if you are a devoted fan of made in Japan goods, then, be smart and always check the country of production before you purchase from Japan and elsewhere.
No 3 Ask Your Friends Travelling Overseas
Even if your friends destination isnt Japan, you could ask them to buy Japanese goods at airports for you. Most duty-free shops around the world carry Japanese brands and they are often cheaper.
Also, check if your favorite Japanese shops are operating in their destination countries. When UNIQLO wasnt still in Australia, I asked a friend travelling to Thailand to buy me a few things from UNIQLO in Bangkok. I also bought a MUJI T-shirt in Paris for a friend in Sydney, who unfortunately had to ask Whats MUJI?.

No 1 Find The Best Online Shop
Takaski, Made in Japan only products
As great as a trip to Japan is, it still costs a bit and takes time. Because you have limited time while travelling, you tend to shop hastily and regret what you bought once you are back home. Shopping online allows you all the time in the world to find and choose the best items from Japan, in the comfort of your own home.
Online shopping could be pricier than shopping in Japan, but its not really so in reality if you think about the cost of travelling or a hassle of begging friends and waiting for a long time.
A few tips on buying goods from Japan online. As mentioned earlier in this post, not all things online are made in Japan. If you dont mind Japanese products that are made in other countries, thats fine.
Take Japanese cars as an example, though. There is apparently a noticeable difference in quality between Japan-made cars and overseas productions. Thats why the former is more expensive than the latter, and this is not necessarily only about Japanese cars.
If you are a discerning online shopper, we can be your favorite online shop. It is our promise to our customers that what they purchase from us are Japanese products that are made in Japan. We do not list products that are produced by Japanese companies if they are not made here.
