We are based in the US, but during the period from June 27, 2017 to the middle of August 2018, we will be in Japan scouting out new films for Zakka and thus will ship items from Japan. If we receive an order before June 26, we will ship it from the US. Orders after that will be shipped from Japan starting June 28. During this period, standard shipping will entail first class international mail (which usually takes 7-10 days), and expedited shipping will be sent EMS (which usually takes 3-5 days). Shipping charges will change, but only slightly.
