Unfortunately, there have been delayed in handling still now, for which we deeply apologize.

Though not only we admin's but also warehouse staff have been handling the orders from the world,
they have been too-too many for us to handle them in timely manner.

Once again, please kindly understand that your order(s) will be certainly handled though it takes much more time than usual.
Your understanding and patience is highly appreciated.



Our default shipping method is EMS​, however SAL/small packet(* It takes about 1 month at least
to be delivered.) may be used if your items can be put in a certain sized box.

All the paid purchases to the same address are combined into single shipment where possible.
If you prefer combined shipping with the ongoing auction items, please contact us, and make a final,
overall payment once you finished shopping.

Items will always be sent to the address you specify in PayPal when you pay. If the address chosen
is different from your usual one, please leave a memo in PayPal.

Please make payment within 7 days of your purchase or auction win. eBay automatically
opens unpaid item cases after 16 days, and this setting cannot be turned off.
(If the unpaid case closes without payment, items will be cancelled and put back up for sale.)

For more details, please our eBay store policy: PAYMENT.

How to wear Yukata (for men)
1. Put the yukata on. Spread your arms out to the side, grasp the end of each sleeve, then tug outward so that there are no creases in the yuki
(combined sleeve and shoulder width). The rear seam should line up with the center of your back.
2. Pinch the collar ends together and bring them out in front of you.
(Keep the rear seam centered at the back!)
3. Making sure the yukata collar is pulled firmly against your neck (guys look cooler when there is no excess space here), bring the right panel of the yukata into your body. Hold the edge of the fabric in place with your left armpit or elbow. 4. Wrap the left panel of the yukata across your body, over the right panel.
Use your right hand to hold the yukata tightly in place at the right side of your body.
5. Hold the koshihimo (waist cord) against the front of your body, at the hip bone. 6. Wrap the koshihimo around the front of your body and cross it at the back.
7. Bring the koshihimo ends around to the front of your body and pull them tight. Tie the ends together at the side of your torso. Tuck the ends underneath so that they don't dangle out. 8. Adjust the collar of the yukata so that the base of your throat can be seen.
9. Remember: Guys look cooler with the back of the collar pressed up firmly against the neck!
