EMS is the international mail service that delivers a parcel to overseas faster than any other postage services. It is treated by top priority and it is also available of a follow-up survey system to find where your parcel is. Instead, it is a more expensive than SAL.

Top priority among international mails is placed on this service! Posts will be delivered for approximately 2-4 days to addressee all over the world.

-AIRMAIL(small packet)-
Small articles can be sent at a lower rate than EMS (Express Mail Service) or Parcel Post.
The maximum weight for these packages is 2 kg.
Fees are relatively high since posts will be sent by air. Delivery will be made approximately 3 - 6 days.
A small packet is, like a letter or postcard, an ordinary postal item, therefore it cannot be sent registered. If registration is required, please use the optional registered mail/advice of receipt service.

This is a service where international mail is handled as surface mail in both Japan and the destination country and as airmail between the two countries. The service is faster than surface mail while the cost is lower than airmail. In this system, your items are shipped out in ordinary mail treatment. Therefore, there's no follow-up survey service. SAL has to be under 2kg.
Please comprehend that there are some countries where SAL is not available. We'll ship your items by AIR MAIL if your country hasn't dealt with SAL. The AIR MAIL service is less expensive than EMS, taking fewer days to deliver comparing with SAL. Please think the service between EMS and SAL. In that case, you are informed of the change regarding your shipping fee first then your items will be shipped only if you accept the changes. Otherwise, You'll be able to cancel the whole order.
