Customs duties and local consumption tax vary depending on the country of destination. Customs duties depend on the type of goods and sometimes benefit from Free Trade Agreements. Consumption tax is applied even if an agreement exists.
If you have to pay custom duties and/or consumption tax, you will be required to pay it when you receive your order.

August 2021: important update for our EU-based customers
Starting from July 1st, 2021, local VAT (consumption tax) be systematically charged at delivery in EU countries and are not included in our prices. All freight forwarders (FedEx, postal services) charge an extra fee to handle VAT (for example, 15 euros for FedEx, 21 euros for France Chronopost).
Depending on the value of your order, FedEx could be the most affordable solution.
IKKYU is currently studying technical and logistic solutions available so that our EU customers may pay local VAT at time of purchase, in order to cut down additional transporter fees. E-commerce developers are working on technical solutions and we will communicate on this point as soon as possible.
Shipping costs are not included (see Shipping section). We accept MasterCard, VISA, AMEX, Paypal, Apple Pay, Google Pay.
