I need a friend in japan


#1

I have a need that requires someone who lives in japan. If you read Japanese that may be able to help as well. Pm me please:)


#2

This sounds sketchy…

Providing details would prevent you from scaring off some potential “friends”.


#3

My bet is that he needs someone in japan in order to buy a certain yoyo that’s japan exclusive


#4

That’s a safe bet spar;)

I have found a site I would like to purchase something from but it’s all in Japanese. Not sure if they ship to the USA or what. Any help would be appreciated.

Google translate, while inaccurate, is a good place to start. :slight_smile:


#6

This will not provide friend to ship if site offers in country shipping only.

It might not be the best option, but if you can’t find a better solution, there are companies in Japan that exist for this purpose. They order the item in Japan, and then ship it out internationally to you once they get it. It’s not the cheapest since you have to pay an extra surcharge plus extra shipping fees for going through a middleman, but sometimes it is the best you can do without connections.

Here is one example of such a site (I haven’t used it and I’m sure there are others, but it should at least give you an idea of this type of company): http://request.whiterabbitexpress.com/

Also, you might be able to get it through Rakuten.
