DELAYS AND STUFF (Updated!)
Friday, 23 August 2013
Hello everyone, my wife and newest son are back home and everything seems to be going well.
Since falling behind, it's going to take some time, but over the next few days, we be working through all of the backlog and trying to get ourselves caught up.
It's hard to put a firm timeline on it since Ai is still pretty worn out from the birth and, of course, our sleeping patterns are currently all over the place with Ken home and crying for food and such all the time.
We continue to appreciate your business and hope to get through this slow period quickly and get your items to you.
P.S. Yes, I am probably beating a dead horse, but would like to post our Amazon referral links one more time. We will be utilizing all the credit we can get to go toward the typical baby supplies and stuff, so please feel free to bookmark this as your regular Amazon link for both the U.S. and Japan Amazon sites. Thank you!
Steelbook Forwarding from Amazon Japan
Wednesday, 17 July 2013
While I have done any type of forwarding up until now, steelbooks have recently started to boom as forwarded items.
I have received some specific questions as to what services are or are not provided, so I thought I would give a brief outline here.
When ordering specifically from Amazon Japan, as always, there are no order fees as you are the one doing all the work.
The only fees will be the forwarding fee and shipping fee.
Forwarding Fee (Can be found here and is based on the final total value of items to be forwarded.)

Amazon Order Address Change
Sunday, 03 February 2013
Now that we are comfortably moved into a new place, we would like to speed up the Amazon process a bit by having things comes directly to us rather than routing through my in-laws and retrieving them once or twice a week.
So, if you would please take note of the new shipping address on the Amazon Japan Ordering Page and change it in your Amazon Japan account settings, that would be great.
Of course, if you happen to have something still sent to them, it's not a problem, it will just continue to take sometimes up to a week before the package makes it's way from there to here. We understand that everyone, especially many existing customers, may not visit the front page directly, so we will begin making notes in requests as orders arrive at my in-laws rather than here so everyone can make the transition.

Those of you that have been here for awhile know of the yearly Japan shipping blackout.
For those of you unfamiliar, it starts NOW due to the New Year holiday.
Regular shipping will be available once again from January 7th. As always, if we already have items here for you, hang tight and they will go out ASAP. If you have items on the way, well, we probably will not be getting them for awhile!

Well, not exactly...
Some (most) of you may have noticed that I have been pretty slow with anything site related these past couple of months.
Sorry about that! >_<
Long story short, not only was our daughter born a couple of months ago, but I was also given a promotion at my "real job" and have been super busy.
While I have kept up with most things on the site, I have very rarely kept up the proper level of communication about what the progress has been and I apologize for that.
Luckily, during my small amount of free time, I have been teaching my wife how to use the site and she has become pretty fair at it.
Beginning now, she should be able to do most things, including give status updates, place orders, quote prices, pack, ship, etc.
I do ask that you remember she is Japanese, so English is her second language. Please forgive her grammatical errors!
Below, you will find a brief message from you to get you off on the right foot!
Hello everyone! As Sam mentioned earlier, I'm still learning. So please forgive my mistakes and bear with me. Once I know how to operate everything I will be able to do better and I'll promise you I will do my best to satisfy you all, thank you! (●´∀｀●) - Ai
