Shopping at amazon.co.jp

It probably makes me look like someone from amazon:P But if you are living in Japan and buy things at amazon.com with expensive shipping cost and handling fee, I like to tell you how to save shipping cost&handling fee. You can buy same book, CD and maybe DVD at amazon.co.jp Don’t be afraid of ordering in Japanese! Because you can order in English!

1. go to http://amazon.com
2. See the “Product Details” and copy ASIN or ISBN
3. go to http://amazon.co.jp
4. Paste the ASIN/ISBN you copied in search box which in top of the left column
5. Get the product detailed page. Click “Display in English” in top of the right column
6. Proceed to checkout!!

That’s all. If you buy 1500 yen or more, you don’t need to pay for shipping.
If you still need a help, go to HELP page in the right side of the top. Find the “Do you need help in English? Click here.” above search box. They have English speaking rep.

    If you need help with finding items on amazon.co.jp, I started a new board at http://www.jpdb.org with the idea of helping people out. I have studied Japanese for two years.
