Welcome to the Tools from Japan store.
As the name suggests, we are all about Japanese tools and the materials used to keep all manner of 'tools' working at their best. We are constantly adding new items to the listings here, so please feel free to take a look around and do check back often to see what is new.
*News for November 2014*
We are mostly up to date for the most part, however there are still some items that are in short supply due to demand from the recent price increases. We are working as quickly as we can in these cases, but are still exceptionally busy as are many of our suppliers.
Christmas is not far away, and worldwide the Post is usually slower than usual at this time of year. We find that delays are not excessive, but do ask that you allow sufficient time to ensure that any possible gifts will arrive with time to spare. If your order is intended to be a gift please make note of that to us so we can do all we can to help ensure your order arrives in time. We do require time to process orders, and would strongly suggest any gift containing orders are placed before the end of November. Please note that we cannot actually ship 'gifts' as the postal regulations do not allow us to do so, so please do not ask us to ship any orders as a 'gift' with regard to customs declarations.
Do please take note that we really are in Japan, and even EMS shipping can take up to 1 week at this time of year.
2014-2015 end of year operations.The Tools from Japan store will be 'closed' from December 22 until January 7, 2015 and any orders received after December 17 most likely will not be shipped before this end of year break, although we will do everything possible to make sure all possible orders are shipped. During this break, ordering will not be possible (payment for orders will be stopped) but the store will still be online and you may still place items in your shopping cart as usual. Completion of orders will not be possible until January 7, 2015.
(We will not be in Japan during this time, and while limited order processing may be available we will not be operating as normal.)
Our apologies for any distress or inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding.
