Nihon gentei stands for “japan limited”, will bring up products made by domestic makers for the Japanese market or limited products by foreign makers for the Japanese consumers. Check out what we found, and/or conduct your own search by copying and pasting the Japanese characters in any search engine.
Imagine that you are looking for those limited edition sneakers, a pair of Kuchinashi jeans, a specific accessory for your camera, original Japanese snacks or Japanese books….
You found what you’ve been looking for online, but now the real problems start, language problems, overpriced international shipping or lack of international shipping, Japanese clothes sizes and credit card issues prevent many from ordering on-line. Or what about the plenty of auction sites in Japan, browsing through them is sheer fun, but ordering from them is like pulling nails.
Wouldn’t you like to know the details, like size and quality, or the sellers reputation before ordering something?
This is where we step in, you tell us what you need and we will find the cheapest option for you and have them delivered to your doorstep. We will bid for you, buy for you or go to the shops for you. We help, advise and guide you.
On your request we will look for reviews and translate them , and if necessary physically check the product .
Just tell us information of the goods that you are looking for and we will handle the rest.
Why use us and not another company?

2-we treat each purchase like it is our own purchase, we carefully look for the cheapest and best option available and present you with these options…we never pressure you to buy something no matter how hard we have to look.
3-think of us like friends in the far east, we’ll think of you as friends, we treat our friends with utmost respect.
4-we try to help to avoid import tax as much as possible…hint; when a product arrives at our storage it becomes our property, by the time you receive it, it is lawfully “used”
5-we charge 10% of the original price, so a 1000 yen product will cost you 1100 yen, we don’t include this 10% in the shipping cost. There are no hidden cost.
