Because of the COVID-19 pandemic,
Japan CANNOT send to the countries listed on the Japan Post website!
You can see updated news of the BANNED
countries
HERE.
Please check to see if your country is on that list before purchasing anything.

I CANNOT send to the countries on the list at the moment, sorry.
If you live in one of the banned areas, you can still purchase from me, but I will have to hold it for you
until the shipping ban is lifted. I do not know how long that will be.

NOTE:

In the past I have often posted unsold pieces here on ebay.

However, because of ebay's unrealistic expectations for sellers, ebay's rather high fees, and ebay's unwillingness
to defend sellers in disputes, I will not be selling there much in the near future. Those are just a few of ebay's
business practices that seem unfair to me. Others are hidden listings despite having paid listing fees, draconian
penalties forcing various conditions, ebay's new requirement to join their own payment program.... oh, the list is
too long.

Most pieces unsold here will go back into the Japanese marketplaces.
Therefore, you can see that I have included 'OR
MAKE ME AN OFFER' to a few items.

Please take advantage of that option to get a better price. I am always willing to listen to offers.
