Hi peeps,

Anyone with this experience who can explain how it's done? For example, who ships the parts? Do we have Cargo companies (like the Eastleigh ones) which ship from Japan?

Thanks.

You need to contact the seller. They will guide you accordingly. Depending on size or weight, Japan Post is the cheapest/ convenient. They will then provide you with 3 options air-1 week or less, SAL -2weeks , Ship-3 months plus.

Japan post is the cheapest by far in Japan. What’s the approximate weight of the spare part. I can check with Japan post. How soon do you need it ?

You can purchase from Amazon and have it shipped at $15 per kg.

Then SAL can do it well for you. Kes 7-8,000. 2-4 weeks. You can’t track your package though. If it was 1-2 kg I could have arranged with a friend coming there.
