JAPANSQUARE is a site that allows customers from approx. 120 countries around the world to enjoy shopping. Due to this, the site is available in a total of 5 languages – Japanese, English, Chinese (Traditional & Simplified) and Korean.
As of August 2016, we have a full lineup of approx. 16,000 food, craft and houseware items! Our staff in charge of acquiring items directly contact local manufacturers from different areas of Japan, making these local products available to our customers. Of course, we also have many popular items of well known Japanese brands.
Features of JAPANSQUARE include the fact that we sell rare items that are not even sold on famous sites and that various items from different regions of Japan can handily be purchased on the same site.
We have a wide variety! Searching for Items
JAPANSQUARE items are divided into 2 main categories – “Food” and “Crafts”.
Also, there are various ways to search for items that allow you to decide how to search depending on what you are looking for.
For example, when you know exactly what you want, when you feel like you want some kind of snacks, etc.
*JAPANSQUARE is a shopping site that delivers items to 120 countries around the world. However, some food items cannot be sold and sent to certain countries due to import restrictions. If you select your country, only the items that can be sold to that country will be displayed.
You can see the new arrival information for each category.
For example, if you want to see our selection of instant noodles, select “Instant Noodles” from the “Noodles” menu.
Craft items are divided into easy-to-select categories to suit various needs.
For example, under “Beauty” there is a lineup of makeup items such as traditional craft “Kumano Fude” brushes.
Click here if you are looking for certified national or prefectural traditional crafts. You’ll find an array of superb items.
You can refine your search using a keyword such as the item name, production area, price, etc.
