Since I haven’t been in Japan recently, I decided to make a purchase on Japanese Amazon. They ship worldwide, except for the more juicy stuff.
The shipping wasn’t really cheap – but the speed was amazing:
- Friday at 11.50 my time (18.50 Japanese time): I place the order.
- Saturday at 03.22 my time (10.22 Japanese time): Amazon ships the order.
- Tuesday at 12.03 my time: DHL delivers the order to my door.
That’s two weekdays (or three real days) for the shipment. Same as (or faster than) most parcels from Sweden take! And slim enough to avoid customs. Happy!
