Delivery to Japan is Just a Hop Away!
Without a doubt, Japan is one of the most technologically-advanced and breathtaking countries in the world. It’s an exquisite place where traditionalism meets novelty, and that’s what makes it so unique and one of the most-visited places in the world. It is also one of the top country choices for small-business owners to expand their networks to.
Regardless if you are a businessperson or if you just want to exchange some American souvenirs and snacks for Japanese ones with your online friend or pen pal, PackageHopper might just be the best option for you! We offer the best shipping rates and fastest routes from the US to over 210 countries worldwide.
What Can I Ship to Japan?
If you’re trying to prepare a surprise for a friend in Japan, ask your friend questions about what they would like to try from the US—or if they have an interest in an American sports team or a certain celebrity—and choose the most suitable fan gear and gifts. It’s even easier if you already know of some US-exclusive items that they’ll absolutely love. However, make sure to check that your limited edition figurines or exclusive sold-out merch isn’t on the Restricted and Prohibited Items list! We want your package to make it safely to Japan.
Japan also has strict customs rules, so you must get acquainted with those first before buying everything and filling up your shipment box. We recommend you visit the official website of any country for specific details about import/export. Since your package will be travelling to the other side of the world, you might consider protecting your shipment with insurance and securing any fragile items with bubble wrap too.
Once you’ve got that all figured out, go ahead and prepare your package for send-off on our easy-to-use rate estimate page. Enter your zip code the destination country (Japan), the full package weight, et voilà! Simply print the labels and customs forms provided by us and bring the package at your nearest drop-off point for our carriers to pick it up and ship it out.
