Hi Everybody,

My website is live as of Monday morning! I carry a wide variety of hard to find bentos like Isso Ecco, Prime Nakamura, Nikyoro, Cram Cream, Totoro (Skater)...etc.

We are based out of Nashville, TN and have already imported the products on our site, so it won't take 2 months. In stock items ship out next day.

Come and check it out! http://www.happyjapan.net.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you all so much!

Congrats on your new site!

Do you ship to Canada? I couldn't find shipping information on the site.

Re: My Bento Website Is Live: Grand Opening ...

oops - found shipping info. But do you ship only UPS? (UPS really hoses the recipient with crazy brokerage fees. Like $45!!!)

Thank you for checking out our site! ^__^ We also ship thru the postal service. We are adding that option tonight. It should save on shipping, especially to Canada and abroad. ^___^ Please contact me if you have any other questions!

Hi BrambleRose and everyone,

I am so glad you all like my site! As part of the celebration I have a special 20% off a total order coupon (excludes shipping) to celebrate my grand opening. Simply enter HJOPENING in the discount coupon section during the checkout process. Also we have free shipping on orders $100 dollars or more! We will also be in the dealers room at MTAC this year, hope to see you there.

Hi JJ sobey,

We have tweaked the shipping module in our cart to give a Canadian shipping options (USPS and UPS). It look like it's giving pretty good rates. Email if you have any trouble (info [at] happyjapan [dot] net)

Re: My Bento Website Is Live: Grand Opening ...

I'm really looking forward to browsing your stuff.

Can I make a suggestion? I'm on a super-fast University internet connection and your pages take forever to load. If you could create thumbnails for the thumbnail images so that the browser isn't doing all of the work to rescale your larger pictures for each item, your site would load in a snap.

I'd love to order and got a shipping quote to UK, but alas I don't have pay pal any more and I'm not interested in resigning up for it either. Pity :0(

Re: My Bento Website Is Live: Grand Opening ...

Hi Laura
I had submitted an online enquiry through the site and received a reply from you, so I know what the shipping costs are for the item I'm interested in! It was discovering the use of paypal that put me off :0) I will have another look at it as I'm in the UK so really need to work out the exchange rate at present to see what it will cost me in GBP.

Thanks for your response

Hi JJ sobey,

Email me the links of the products that are sold out that you are interested in. We currently have a order that should be filled at the end of the month, we may be getting them in rather quickly. (info [at] happyjapan [dot] net)

Currently the LocknLock bentos are not one of our distributors, but we can look into finding some.

Thanks,

Hi arkonitebabe,

Thank you for your interest in my products. Good news, the way our PayPal cart works you don't have to be a member. It will just act as a payment gateway. Let me know if you need me to price some shipping on specific items.

Thanks,

Hi Everybody!

We solved our issue of international shipping. For international customers simply choose the flat rate shipping during the checkout process. All international orders will be shipped international first class mail with an estimated delivery time of 5-10 days.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi arkonitebabe!

I forgot to mention in my last post that our cart system has a currency exchange built into it! Simply click on the currencies drop down menu while in the cart system and chose GB Pound. Big props to our webmaster who thought of everything for us.
