Four ways to find products in Japan
Check the page for available products. They are only a few of the examples you can order.
We will liaise with them first, and negotiate terms, etc. If you want to communicate with them directly, you can, too. Also, many of the suppliers are small but are more reasonable and flexible with the terms than big enterprises.
Register and post your ads. Let us know what you are looking for. We will look for you and give you a list of suggestions or you may be contacted by suppliers directly.
You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, as well.
There are some online malls available in English where you can browse products. You may notice many are same products available in your country, but try look for something original. If you find anything interesting, we will contact and/or look for wholesalers.
Gift Show/Trade Show
(Check Japan and industry for a refined search)
Come to Japan! and visit trade shows and gift shows.

How it works
Finding products to Shipping to your destination
1) Find Products
In general, products made in Japan (or manufactured elsewhere under supervision of Japanese company) are of very high quality and therefore more costly than products from China. Focusing on added value, authenticity, uniqueness and such would be important to be profitable. If you don’t have any particular item in mind but have a broad idea about what would sell in your country, we will help you with research and suggestions.
2) Get Sample
You should always get some samples. Many suppliers are wholesalers so they have stocks. If you are interested in creating/customizing your original products, we can help product development as well.
3) Negotiate Terms
If you like the product, time to negotiate. MOQ really depends. We would recommend to start with about 100 unit to minimize risk (on both sides).
We accept International Wire Transfer, Paypal, eCheck (to our US bank).
If the order amount is under USD 1,000, 100% Deposit will be required (escrow is available). Above USD 1,000, negotiable.
5) Product Inspection
Defect ratio is usually less than 1%, but it’s a good idea to do inspection before shipping also to make sure all requests are complied with.
5) Shipping and Export Customs Clearance
DHL, EMS, Yamato or any other suitable carrier.
