We usually send the boxes between the 5th and the 9th of each month.

Then you have to consider about 20 days before your box arrives.

Sometimes, the shipping can take longer if the post has a lot of packages to process at the airport.

If you choose the delivery method with tracking and insurance, then you'll find your tracking number in the confirmation email. However, if you don't pick this option, it won't be possible to track your package.

Shipping and carrier

Boxes usually take 20 days to arrive, but it may take longer if there are a lot of packages to process at the airport. In that case, the Post may receive the package later and the shipping may be delayed.

If you chose the shipping with tracking, go to the Japanese post service web site that you received in the confirmation mail of your box. If the package arrived in your home country, you can have more info on the web site of your local post service.

If you didn’t choose the tracking option, you only have to wait. Some packages can rarely take more than a month to arrive.

A package is considered lost three months after the shipping. During this period, the package can arrive at your house or be sent back to Japan. If the package comes back in Japan, we’ll contact you to offer you a reshipping.

The shipping costs of the NihonBox are $5.50 without tracking and insurance, for most countries (see exceptions hereunder).

The tracking / insurance cost $3.40. In some countries (Germany, Italy, Spain), this option is required.

The shipping costs are different (check it on checkout page) for the following countries:

  • Guadeloupe, Martinique, New Caledonia, French Polynesia
  • Réunion, French Guiana

We ship the NihonBox worldwide!

If your country isn't in the list, please contact us so that we can add it.

If the tracking of your package on the Japan Post web site shows “Retention”, it means that your box is waiting for you in your post office.

From time to time, we send boxes to YouTubers or bloggers to make them discover our surprise box. However, we have to choose wisely because our stock is rather limited:

  • Your channel / blog has to have something to do with Japan, food or monthly boxes
  • You need to have a significant number of views, as we don’t send boxes to new sites / YouTube
