Our customers' stories

United States

Age 29

If you don't buy a Japanese limited edition product or brand new product as soon as they come out, the price doesn't just shoot up, so does the its rarity. That's where From Japan came in. I am always able to find what I wanted at a low price and am extremely grateful for their service.


Age 34

The item I've wanted for nearly ten years finally showed up on a Japanese auction site! Of course it would, since it is a Japanese brand. Thanks to From Japan, I bought it and I'm excited to have finally added it to my collection. Thank you so much, From Japan!


Age 22

I don’t need to buy the latest things and don't mind buying used items. On Yahoo Japan's auction site, I was able to find many people selling used, expensive Japan-limited items at lower prices than I expected. Compared to my country, I know I can always purchase what I want safely through From Japan.
