Doorzo currently provides four shipping options through Japan Post, offering services including EMS, Registered Small Packet, Air Mail, and Surface Mail.
The following is an introduction to the delivery options provided by Japan Post, along with relevant notes. Please read through if you plan to use Japan Post for shipping your packages.
【Summary of Japan Post's delivery options】
① EMS: The fastest shipping method; Doorzo provides EMS packages with exclusive advantages, including prioritized packaging and shipping.
② Registered Small Packet: A rapid shipping choice ideal for packages weighing less than 1.8 kg.
③ Air Mail: While the fees are relatively higher, the delivery time is second only to EMS.
④ Surface Mail: Shipped by sea, this option provides a cost-effective solution for heavier packages and packages with less time sensitivity.
Note: Delivery time may experience delays due to unforeseen circumstances such as natural disasters or human factors, as well as potential impacts from local customs and postal processing times. International shipping timelines are subject to actual transportation conditions. Your understanding and patience are appreciated.
【Japan Post Shipping Rates】
The international shipping fees are set according to the official rates provided by Japan Post.
To calculate the shipping costs for shipping to different countries and regions, you can use the [International Shipping Calculator].

Here is the list of shipping handling fees for packages being shipped with a non-EMS option:
Registered Small Packet

Japan Post does not limit the number of items shipping from Japan. However, please be mindful of any restrictions imposed by the destination country.
2. Quantity limit for items with batteries:
