Shipping methods from Japan to France/Europe

Note: This is mostly a memo for me because I am always lost behind all those shipping methods available.

Japan Post website. Tariff code for customs


International ePacket

Small packet AIR

Small packet Surface (boat)

Others for more than 2kg

Sending more than 2kg is not cheap! So I never used. Available if your package is more than 2kg:

Others not available

I don't really know why it is not available. Maybe it change sometimes? Especially during COVID period...

Small packet SAL

Used in the past, cannot use it anymore.

International ePacket light

Never used. Don't know the difference with the non-light...
