Best website to buy books from Japan

Hi all, long time since I’ve posted - hope you’re all well.

I seem to remember you clever things finding a website which was great for shopping from and other non-auction sites, and it had a pretty good delivery policy too. Can someone share it again with me please? Any suggestions would be welcome actually… I’m in London (UK) still so don’t want to be hit by a load of custom charges if possible.

In case anyone’s wondering, I’ve not bought anything for a long while. At one point I considered selling up but decided that’s never going to happen, so those cards stay with me for the time being! I’ve just not got the time to collect seriously anymore though unfortunately.

I’d be happy to assist you in obtaining books in Japan. Not only do I live here, I’m also the director of a publishing company.

If interested, send me a PM or simply reply to this thread.


Dogma :-):-):-):-):slight_smile: it has been a while :slight_smile: glad to see you are well

Whoa! Who’s that pokemon! I had to double check to make sure it was you.

It’s good to see you again dogma!

You are not alone in your position. I had to thin out my collection a bit as well when I moved. I miss the old days when I would have nothing to worry about but what card I was going to buy next.

For your question about buying books, Glenn (japananime) is your best bet. He lives in Japan. He is that ideal mix of English/Japanese that we always wish was real, but is actually real. :blush:


Good to see your still around.

Japanime might be the option because he would be able to a lower custom value so you don’t get hit with the custom charge + parcelforce charges.

Hey Dogma…welcome back:)
One last recommendation for Glenn(Japanime). Good guy and an oldtimer like me lol.

I hands down do NOT recommend Glenn. And here is why:

I’m completely kidding. He’s a swell guy and perfect for the job.

You can still get hit with customs.
Trust me :stuck_out_tongue:

Nope with my last few package through SMJ with a value of 3000 yen I don’t get hit with any custom charges.
