Hi everyone!

Welcome to Cute Things from Japan! My name is Ayako. I am a Japanese stay-at-home mom with 1 year old daughter. I started this shop in 2014 in hope of helping my penpals living overseas who are looking for some cute craft and planner supplies from Japan.

In 2015, my sister joined Cute Things from Japan. Her baby boy was born with hydrocephalus that requires attention and daily home rehabilitation, so we decided to work together at my house while taking care of her boy.

We are truly very thankful that we can work from home with our children, and we know we cannot do this without your kind support. So thank you very much. To appreciate your support, we offer reasonable shipping fee system. You can simply choose from two FLAT RATE shipping methods: FLAT Standard Shipping WITHOUT tracking & insurance ($3.90) or FLAT Registered Mail WITH tracking & insurance ($8.00). Free Standard Shipping is available for order over US$50 excluding shipping (check shop announcement for coupon code).

As we are full-time mother during the day and weekends, and sometimes my sister has to stay at the hospital with my nephew for rehabilitation program for few weeks, our reply to your convos during these times may not be immediate, but we will try out best to reply you as soon as possible, so please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about my shop. :)

By the way, I only sell items that I approve their quality by actually having them in my hand and trying them at the stationery fair hosted by stationery makers for shop owners, so please feel confident with the quality of the items. What I love about craft supplies in Japan is that they have good quality for their price. I am sure you will be happy with your items!

I hope you will find something you like and enjoy shopping in my shop!

Have a lovely day!
AYAKO and JUNKO

Shipping

**SHIPPING FEE**
Japan Post charges additional $1 to the basic shipping fee every 50g which makes the shipping expensive for large orders, so we offer our shop's own shipping fee system by paying part of your shipping to support you in return. Now shipping is simple and reasonable. You can simply choose from two FLAT RATE shipping methods:

- FLAT Standard Shipping WITHOUT tracking & insurance ($3.90), or
- FLAT Registered Mail Shipping WITH tracking & insurance ($8.00).

Free Standard Shipping is available for order over US$50 excluding shipping (see shop announcement for coupon code). Thought the standard shipping is secure, shipping upgrade for tracking & insurance is strongly recommended for your first order, for order over US$50 or orders in busy holiday season so that you can know where your package is now and if the package arrived damaged or went missing, we can issue a refund.

Please note that Japan Post has different fee schedule for EMS (Express Mail Service), so if you wish your order to be shipped via EMS, please contact us. We will let you know the additional fee and send you a paypal invoice.

**IMPORTANT**
Shipping to CANADA, CHINA, MALAYSIA, INDIA, INDONESIA, THAILAND, PHILIPPINES, RUSSIA, SPAIN and ITALY are Registered Mail (or EMS upon buyer's request) only, and the shipping is already adjusted for Registered Mail Shipping.

For Canadian buyers, due to recent delay in shipping due to your countries custom check, the now shipping to Canada must be tracked and insured for more secure shipping. Thank you very much for your understanding. About Eastern Canada, we will offer standard shipping again if the situation becomes better. And due to multiple lost packages, we no longer ship to Mexico, South America and Africa. If order arrives from these areas, order will be automatically cancelled. Thank you very much for your understanding.

**CANADIAN CUSTOMERS in BC, YK, NU and NT**
According to Japan Post,due to problems at Vancouver custom, shipping to these provinces will be very slow (it can take few months). If you do not want to wait that long, please consider upgrading to EMS (convo us for more info) or wait until the situation there becomes better.

*DELIVERY ADDRESS*
The order will be shipped to your Etsy address. Buyers are responsible for having an accurate address listed at all times.

*DELIVERY TIME*
All orders are shipped from Japan within 3 business days of receiving payment (except on the weekend and on public holiday because the post office is closed). Average delivery time in non holiday season is as follows.
- US, UK, Europe, NZ: 1-3 weeks (average 1-2 weeks)
- Germany: 1-4 weeks (depends on the speed of custom check)
- Canada, Australia: (2-8 weeks)
- Asia, Russia, Middle East (2-4 weeks)

*The delivery time differs depending on where you live and how fast your country's custom and postal service proceed your package. The custom check in Canada, Germany, Austria, Australia and Italy is tighter and takes longer than the average, and delivery may take longer than 8 weeks.

*CUSTOM REGULATIONS*
Any potential taxes/duties charged by the buyer’s government for importing goods are the buyer’s sole responsibility. Please check your country’s taxes/duties prior to purchasing. Taxes/duties will be charged on a shipment valued over certain value.

Additional policies and FAQs

**Limited Edition Items**
As limited edition items and Traveler's Factory shop exclusive items are hard to get and I want many people to enjoy them, I ask one person to order the same limited edition or Traveler's Factory shop exclusive item at most 3. If the same person orders the same limited edition items more than 3 times, I may have to ask to cancel the order. Thank you very much for your understanding.
