Generally it takes about one week from Tokyo to Asia, Europe and North America. The fastest record from my experience is just 3 days from Tokyo to Black Forest Region in Germany. On the other hand, sometimes their service is unexpectedly slow, for example once it took more than two weeks from Tokyo to New York. I can say that their service is reliable, but please be prepared for some delay.
All orders are packed with care and ample packing materials. Tracking numbers will be provided to each parcel. So you don’t need to worry about the book(s) being lost or damaged in transit.
One copy of Tokyo Silence is 5,280 Japanese Yen (about 40 euro) + shipping. The shipping cost (for one copy of the book + packing materials, total 720g) is as follows :

One signed postcard-sized print (an archival pigment print on Pictran Kyokushi Baryta, the highest quality inkjet paper in Japan, see below) will be given as a gift to those who purchase the book directly from me (until it lasts).
Unfortunately there are several countries Japan Post doesn’t handle airmail service due to the cancellation of flights caused by Covid-19 as of March, 2022. Countries on the list are India, Israel, Italy, Brazil, Chile, Romania, Russia and others (Ireland and Argentina were on that list last year but now it seems OK). There are other options of shipping for those countries such as UPS or FEDEX but shipping cost will be much higher(for example, one copy of Tokyo Silence to Italy by UPS will cost you 3,200 Yen = about 24.5 Euros).
