JWS japanwebshopping website renewal.

Let me first thank you all dear customers/friends who have been putting your trust in our service, without your help we’d all be working for other companies and we wouldn’t enjoy our jobs/lives as much as we do now.

We’ve been  getting the most surprising and unusual requests and thereby expanding our horizon in what you want and we learn what makes our fellow human being tick. Communicating with folks from all around the world has been a challenging at times (we had to bring in a part-time Spanish speaker/translator  and on a rare occasion a Russian translator), but besides  these rare hiccups, chatting with you through Skype/WordPress/mail and Facebook has been a blast.

We also value your input a lot, and a common complain was that our website loaded like snail…our mistake was that we tried to put as much information and connecting links in it as possible, thereby creating a headache for those without high speed internet access.

So we went a bit simpler this time, and changed the look to a more material/metal look. The pages load a bit faster and it’s definitely easier to the eye. Our love for manga and anime are also more present this time around.




This dark metallic look continues in the separate product pages.


We still haven’t completed the whole site yet though(especially the Japanese section), but we’re working hard to have it finished before Christmas.

Thank you all so much for your patience and in the meantime we will continue to be the best/safest/cheapest (and most personal) personal shopper for you.


Super convenient: A bendable power strip.

Power strips are life savers for those with lots of electrical appliances but few power outlets. I have for example a desktop, four hard disks, a printer, a wireless modem, a monitor, and a refrigerator( keep those cold ones close) all connected to one power outlet! Without the help of three power strips I would have never been able to create such a mind blowing electricity bill every month!

The problem though is that quiet a few appliances connect with an adapter which take an awful lot of space on those power strips. I would have only needed one power strip if it weren’t for those obese  space grabbing adapters.

Another problem is that there isn’t any space in my cramped office to hide those power strips from sight, and you have to admit that these electrical necessities don’t improve overall looks.

Hide it if you can!

Well Sanwa hasn’t come up with a totally new idea, after all the Quirky Pivot Power was there earlier, but as opposed to the quirky, this one is light weight, reliable and contains an USB port.


Coming in four colo(u)rs

The length of the cord is 2 meters and the USB port is a 5V-1A(up to 1500 w), strong enough to charge your phone or mp3 players.

On the floor

I think with the right amount of imagination, you can make the shape of a robot with 6 of them together…I don’t know WHY you would that, but it would look awesome against the wall!
