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 Australia via a reliable parcel forwarder.
That’s why Buyandship is here to help.

From 1 July, 2018, GST also applies to the low-value imported goods (AU$1,000 or less). 10% of the value of goods or services will be charged as the GST. For more information, please refer to Taxation.
