As we make adjustments in our daily lives, we are working to develop ways to put our team and our clients first. Our mitsumebooks.com online store remains open and but shipping is now only possible for some countries. According to information from the Japan Post updated in June 30.


"Our acceptance of various international mail items has been temporarily suspended due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Meanwhile, we will resume acceptance of mail items as noted below from July 1.

  • EMS and parcel-post/letter-post items by surface destined to China
  • EMS and parcel-post/letter-post items by air destined to Italy and New Zealand
  • Parcel- post/letter-post items by surface destined to Indonesia

For details on the countries and territories to which acceptance of mail is still temporarily suspended as of July 1, please see the appendix (PDF:59kB). We continue to temporarily suspend acceptance of mail items destined to these countries and territories because their postal operators are still not accepting inbound postal items and/or our transportation performance remains significantly reduced due to reduction of flights from/to Japan.
Meanwhile, although dispatch of United States-bound items that have already been accepted will be completed soon, we continue to temporarily suspend acceptance of various mail items to the United States because we are unable to make any prospect for securing sufficient transportation capability for the time being.
In addition, because of the global reduction of flights, considerable delivery delays are expected for accepted outbound mail items.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. It would be appreciated if you would kindly understand this situation in advance."

Please have any questions or queries do not hesitate to contact us. info@mitsumebooks.com

Our logistics team is taking firm steps to identify hygiene in alignment with WHO issues.

We are following the latest directives from Japan Post. Delivery times may be extended.

In this very special context, delivery in the countries mentioned above is possible, for the rest of the countries, although you can request a reservation for a product, we recommend that you wait until it returns to normal before placing your order. Delays, of course, are extended.

If you have any questions, our team works at home and is available to assist you at info@mitsumebooks.com!

For a little daily comfort, we give you an appointment on our social networks: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.

We know this is a difficult time, and our hearts are with you. Time to love yourself from afar, but even stronger!

Stay positive & take care of yourself ❤︎
