    A few times, most of stuff is available on amazonjp also, Amazon seems to ship quicker and cheaper. I got a box set in three days once! Great customer service they will try to source your product from somewhere else if they dont have. Try to go with them as much as i can. Loved those japanese pressings since i was a kid first vinyl and now cds. The deluxe japan exclusives are a fans dream and a budget buster! Have fun

    The only problem with ordering from this outfit is how long you have to wait for transit. Not their problem. Otherwise, the service is fine.

    I've bought from them in the past. Never any problems.

    If you elect EMS shipping, it's usually pretty quick.

    But they have many shipping options, some are lightning fast. If you pick SAL it is slow but cheaper.

    absolutely legit, I order all the time from them, and have never waited more than 2 1/2 to 3 weeks to receive my packages.

    They pack shipments the best, bubble wrapped and in a small hard cardboard box.

    I have bought several Rolling Stones SHM cds from them.

    You can even pay them in cash. You would probably have to worry more about the letter being lost in the mail than CDJapan not honoring your payment.

    Plus they give you bonus points for your birthday (300 yen off the price...about $5) and other discounts for just ordering a CD.

    I've purchased through them many times over the years and have even used their Proxy Service several times, which is great for OOP items. I never had any issues with the actually shipping, the delay was mostly from them waiting for stock to arrive from either their supplier or the Proxy Service supplier.

    They did recently have a problem when they moved their fulfillment center/warehouse and all their shipments were delayed substantially (unfortunately I was one of them) , which they say is now resolved. Otherwise, I've always have had good experiences with them.

    However, I've noticed that they don't carry as many "in-stock items" (1-3 days) as they use to, now the majority are "in-stock with supplier" (3-7 days).

    I've ordered tons of stuff from them. never had an issue until recently. I blame myself for letting it happen. basically pre-ordered some mini-lp cds .
    The items kept getting delayed month after month. finally the site says they will be released later that month. then I receive this email:

    "it was necessary to process the payment due to the requirement to finalize payments within 90 days the issuer of your card granted us the authorization to do so. Your order above contains items whose release dates were more than 90 days in the future when you placed your order.
    Now that the payment went through, we are enabled to continue with your order. It will be sent to you as soon as all items are available for shipment.""

    Should never have allowed the charge. Problem is the items were canceled and the order was canceled but no refund! I have e-mailed four times already asking for store credit or refund but no reply. Have to say I am disappointed. I've spent a lot of money over the years with them.

    I always use SAL. Post service between Japan and Canada is extremely reliable. Speed doesn't matter much to me.
    And unlike Amazon they accept PayPal.

    Never any problem and I have ordered dozens of titles from them over the years.

    Good company, good service - the only reason I don't order more from them is that I invariably get clobbered with import duty (and have to pay Royal Mail a handling fee for the privilege)
