Why are some shipping options unavailable?

Updated by Sandy

At Japan Rabbit, we offer a variety of shipping options from reliable carriers such as Japan Post, DHL, and FedEx. If you can't see some of the shipping options, here are a few possible reasons why:

1. The shipping options are not available in your country.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, some shipping options may not be available for delivery to your country. Please check with us for the latest updates.

2. Some items are prohibited with specific shipping couriers.

Please check our prohibited items guide and shipping restriction guide.

3. Your package exceeds the size limit of some shipping options.

Different carriers have different size limits for the packages they can deliver. Please refer to the following size limits:
