Don't see package count or dimension input? MyUS calculates rates by weight ONLY, regardless of package size and count.

 Excludes oversized and palletized shipments. Oversized shipments are those with linear dimensions (total Length + Width + Height) greater than 108" (274 cm).

Paying Duty & Taxes in Japan

The Japan de minimis value is the declared value of your shipment below which duty and tax will not apply. If you're importing a package with a total declared value LESS than this amount, duty and tax will not apply and you will not be responsible for paying those taxes. However, certain products may be subject to other types of fees or taxes. Duties and taxes are not included in your MyUS shipping costs. You are responsible for paying any charges due upon delivery.

  • De minimis Value for Duty: 10,000 JPY*
  • De minimis Value for Tax: 10,000 JPY*

*excluding alcohol and tobacco where duty/tax apply


The MyUS Advantage:

We'll let you know if any of your purchases are illegal to import to Japan or if any merchandise is broken before we ship your packages to you. This means you won't incur shipping charges, duties or taxes on items you may need to return to US stores.

Transit Times

How long will it take to receive your package? Average transit times from MyUS to Japan are:

  • Express shipping (preferred): 3 to 4 business days
  • Economy shipping: 5 to 10 business days

All shipping from the United States originates at the MyUS secure warehouse in Sarasota, Florida.


The MyUS Advantage:

Members can easily compare shipping methods, rates and delivery times when they set up their ship requests so they can quickly find the fastest or most cost-effective delivery method.

No one wants their package to be blocked or held up in customs. Certain products are prohibited from entering Japan. Learn which items are not allowed in Japan by reviewing the links below (also please be aware of items that cannot be exported from the US).


The MyUS Advantage:

What are the Rates for Shipping to Japan from the USA?

MyUS is pleased to offer its members discounted shipping rates to Japan, thanks to our free package consolidation services and exclusive partnerships with FedEx, DHL, USPS and UPS.

To find out how much it will cost to ship specific items to Japan, use our shipping cost estimator. Your shipping charges will vary depending on:

  • Your MyUS membership level
  • If express shipping is selected 
  • How many items you are consolidating into one package
  • How much your package weighs

MyUS determines international shipping charges based on package weight ONLY, unlike other consolidation companies or freight forwarders who base the price on weight AND the size and shape of the package. This straightforward pricing prevents surprise shipping costs when your package is larger in size than expected.** 

When you become a MyUS member, you have access to a real-time shipping calculator that shows you exact costs, and gives side-by-side comparisons of which shipping options will be the cheapest or fastest ways to ship your item to Japan.
