ePacket now Registered International Small Packet


Registered International Small Packet.

October 2023 Update - Registered International Small Packet or 小型包装物書留 has replaced ePacket and resumed service on October 1, 2023. It is basically the same service with a different name.


ePacket is a new shipping method started by Japan Post on 1 April 2012.

ePacket can be used for packages up to 2,000g (EMS is 30,000g) and is trackable online and insured. ePacket is not as expensive as EMS and only slightly slower with packages from Japan to the USA, for example, taking 5 days. ePacket parcels are treated as First Class mail in the USA.

ePacket affords peace of mind for small packages and is much less fraught with risk of non-arrival or loss as normal airmail.

For light-weight goods such as kendama and gyroscopes, ePacket is ideal, and the service, which also operates in Hong Kong, is aimed at ecommerce merchants.

Solar Energy Bag For BBQs & Camping

Solar Energy Bag For BBQs & Camping

These new Solar Energy Bags are a great asset on a camping trip or when walking or cycling on a dark road.

The PVC bags are inflatable and are thus easy to pack and transport.

Just charge the solar cell, inflate the bag and use it for reading inside a tent or as an emergency light source.
