Right now, orders are taking around 3-5 days to process and package to ship out. Once they go out, they take about *1-3 business days for Priority Mail or *2-5 days for First Class Mail (which is regular mail). Please check www.usps.com for updates on delays regarding covid-19 that the post office may be experiencing. You can email us at contact@japanla.com for any questions about your orders.

"What is the JapanLA App?"

We are LIVE Every Friday at 5pm PST on the JapanLA App! You can chat with us in real time and we do lots of fun giveaways and show all of our favorite new items in the store. You can buy on the app, get push notifications about new releases, and get app exclusive gifts with purchase. Download the JapanLA app in the iOS Apple Store or Google Play store on your mobile device. 

"Do you ship internationally?"

Yes, we do ship internationally. Cost of shipping varies, and the shipping amount calculated online is a good estimate of how much you will pay for international shipping. Sometimes, we do require more shipping costs if the box is oversized due to purchasing bulkier items or a lot of items, and we will contact you if that occurs to bill you for more shipping or cancel your order if shipping costs are too high.
