INTERNATIONAL BUYERS

Customs Duties and Import VAT

Your package may be subject to customs tax and VAT (Value Added Tax).
These extra charges are forms of tax that are NOT included with Asakura Japan prices or our shipping charge.
These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up. 
Do not confuse them for additional shipping charges, and it will be your responsibility to complete the payment in order to receive your order.
Furthermore, your government may allow your postal service and couriers to charge fees to cover the administrative costs involved in customs clearance (instead of using the tax money to fund the effort).

Although it varies from country to country and it is not possible for us to find out the details. So, please make sure to find out the customs policy of your country before placing your order.

We are required to declare the value of prices paid for items accurately on the package to ensure that your package arrives without serious troubles at customs.
Please do not contact us to undervalue your order.

As the customs office applies the customs charges randomly on arriving parcels, we are not able to predict or control it on our end. So, once again, please make sure to find out the customs policy of your country.
