Parcel delivery to Japan

Japan

Japan is home to a whole host of cultural icons beloved around the world. From key players in the gaming industry — Atari, Nintendo and Capcom to name but a few — to foods like sushi and tempura, it’s no wonder why the demands for Japanese exports increases year on year. All that revenue also makes Japan the world’s fifth-largest importer, meaning that there is an equally high demand for parcels from the rest of the world.

Parcel delivery to Japan needn’t be difficult, however. Thanks to a broad network of trusted courier services, we offer cheap parcels without sacrificing premium service. So, whether you need to ship to the neon-lit Tokyo or to the quiet mountain peaks of Hokkaido, all you need to do to get started is fill in the quote form above. Arigatō!

Do I need to deal with customs when sending from the UK to Japan?

That’s because when you place your order, we’ll send you over all the necessary forms for you to fill in as way to ensure that your packages get through customs hassle-free.

How should I address my parcel for delivery to Japan?

Addressing to Japan follows the same rules as it does here in the UK. It’s worth noting that Japanese ZIP codes are made up of seven numbers, rather than our letter-number system.

For an in-depth look in how to address a parcel to Japan, you can refer to this useful addressing guide put together by the Universal Postal Union.

What items can I send?

The Japanese imports office follows the same regulations as the majority of the world in terms of which items can and cannot be brought into the country. Banned items include:

  • Print and film materials deemed obscene (including pornography)
  • Explosives
  • Illegal drugs
  • Materials that infringe copyright

For the best information on postal legislation in Japan, check with the Japanese customs office. Plus, it’s worth familiarising yourself with our prohibited items list to ensure that your item can legally be carried in UK post as well.
