Rakuten Japan Online Store: https://www.rakuten.co.jp
Rakuten Ichiba is the largest e-commerce site in Japan and among the world’s largest in sales. It is often referred to as “the Amazon of Japan”. The store offers everything from clothing to beauty products and has tons of promo codes, cash backs, and coupons on a variety of brands updated on a daily basis.
The bad thing is, Rakuten has closed its international site recently and its Japan site doesn’t support shipping outside Japan, thus you have to get a free Japan address for your order and ship to Singapore via a reliable parcel forwarder.
That’s why Buyandship is here to help.

Remember you may have to pay for tax and duty if your shipment’s CIF (Cost, Insurance, and Freight, which means that the import duty and taxes payable are calculated on the complete shipping value, which includes the cost of the imported goods, the cost of insurance, and the cost of freight. Duty will be calculated on the sum of the CIF and the landing charges.) value is over S$400.
Our courier partners will handle the process on your behalf and will inform you beforehand on the estimated custom tax and duty you’ll need to pay to Customs.
