To start, here is a list of Japanese online shops that we recommend. Of course, you can buy products on all these stores using White Rabbit Express.
Many products are exclusively sold in Japan. This does not only include the video game, anime and Japanese popular culture industries. For example, fashion brands sometimes offer collections or pieces only available in Japanese stores. This is even true for European and American brands.
In addition, the Japanese second-hand market is exceptional! The Japanese take care of their items so much that used products sold on sites like Mercari or Yahoo Auctions are always in very good conditions. So you can find good deals by browsing on Japanese online stores.
All these factors make shopping on Japanese sites interesting to foreign buyers. Unfortunately, there are some barriers between non-Japanese consumers and online stores in Japan.
The problem with Japanese sellers is that very few of them decide to offer their products internationally. Most Japanese merchants only focus on their domestic market and make no effort to open up to the rest of the world.
This trend is reflected in various problems that non-residents of Japan may encounter when they want to buy Japanese items:
We created White Rabbit Express to solve all these problems. Our proxy shopping service is the tool that will allow you to buy on any Japanese site as if you were living in Japan.
