Shipping Information

How does Ichigo-Ichie Shoes ship its orders?

International orders are shipped via DHL on a DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid) basis. As such, clients are responsible for any customs fees, duties, or taxes incurred from purchasing goods internationally. Import duty or tax costs will be invoiced to you directly from DHL. We recommend you contact your local customs authority to determine a landed cost price prior to purchase completion.

As per international laws regulating commerce and trade of imports and exports, all orders shipped out of Japan include an official invoice declaring the value of merchandise purchased in Japanese YEN.

Orders for available merchandise are typically fulfilled the same business day if the order is received before 4:00pm JST. We aim to fulfill all orders placed online within 3 business days. Orders placed on weekends are shipped the next business day.

Ichigo-Ichie reserves the right to delay a shipment if we believe the order is fraudulent or unable to ship due to inventory issues. Additional shipping costs for rejected or returned-to-shipper packages are the responsibility of the client.
