We ship our items from post office basically.
There are three options:
Express(EMS) 3-5 business days
Standard(SAL) 2 weeks to a month
By SEA 5 weeks to three months
The shipping may take longer according to each country- we are afraid it seems Standard shipping to USA sometimes takes more than a month.
Express has a tracking website and you can track a parcel easily, so we recommend to choose Express if you need to receive your order by a certain date.
Someitems cannot be shipped by Standard or by SEA because of the size. Please see the shippig cost information of each item in the listing page.
(if you prefer to use FeDEX, please let us know.
We ship our items from JAPAN. You may be charged fee at the custom in your country. We can not know whether your package will be charged or not, and how much it will cost. In any case, the customs duty is the recipient's responsibility.
Our items are old(used) or vintage, so they are basically unreturnable.The items are sent from Japan directly by using international postal service, so international shipping cost is charged- which is different from domestic shipping and it is considered as indivitual import. We answer any questions about your order if needed beforehand. If there is any flaw which are not shown in the listing, we will refund after checking. Please let us know within 14 days after the arrival of the parcel. We cannot accept any returning after 14 days from the delivery date. We cannot accept any returning without any contact to us.

been a long time since we began wearing western clothes in our daily lives.
But kimono, the Japanese traditional clothes are not something what we want
to leave behind. Ichiroya is opened to offer you the authentic and charming
old kimono on the net. Most of the kimono we offer here are one-of -a-kind
from Kyoto, Osaka, Nara and Kobe. Please take a look at the detailed pictures.
We send the item directly from Japan to your place.
A lot of kimono have been kept carefully in the chest of each family for a long time. We take a gentle care of them and fix if needed and offer you with a reasonable price just as the price of the Japanese flea markets ! We offer kimono, haori(a short jacket), uchikake(a wedding coat) , furisode( flowing- sleeve fancy kimono) and cute children's kimono, too! We also offer a variety of obi(sash belt), haori ties and other accessories to go with kimono. We are constantly adding new items.
kimono are just art created by elaborate work of craftmanship. Some are
handsewn by mothers to get enough warmth. Some have dynamic and stunning
designs. Some have the design s so subtle. Some textiles are woven with
the premium silk, and some are woven with left over silk thread. Some are
worn by a bride in her wedding ceremony only once, but some are worn by
ordinary hardworking mothers everyday. Some are heavily brocaded on exquisite
silk, and some has been untied , redyed and sewn again for the second or
third time use. Some have designs using symbols of prosperity, longevity
or children's health and growth. Some even have militaristic tone handpaintings
in the lining!
charms of kimono are timeless, and we think they are borderless, too. There
were many rules to wear kimono as a garment. But taking them into our life
now, there is no rule. With your artistic flair, they become alive again,
as a garment or an interior decor to brighten up the corner of your home.
Our job is to wake up old kimono and introduce their charms and send them to new homes. If you meet your special kimono in our shop, we will be very happy to wake her (or him)up and tell her to get ready for travel. They will be happy to fly to any place in the world to be used again! Please come to see our old kimono and find your special one.
