Popular international moving destinations from Japan:
1) USA 2) Australia 3) Canada 4) New Zealand 5) UK 6) Malaysia 7) France 8) Netherlands 9) South Africa
With a large number of US American residents in Japan, and also Japanese people moving there to study, live with a family or work, the USA is by far the most popular shipping destination. The second popular international removals destination is Australia with most people shipping mainly to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or nearby areas. The third popular international moving destination from Japan is Canada with people shipping to major cities across the country. Among the Asian countries, Malaysia is No. 1. Shipments to Malaysia outnumbers shipments to Singapore and Thailand, where a number of people from the USA or from Europe ship to as well. The fact that South Africa is in the top 10 destination countries for moving is significant since the population of people from South Africa is not very large in Japan.
Why we can offer cheaper moving and shipping rates than others.
Traditionally, most overseas movers in Japan handle only large shipments which consist mostly of pieces of furniture. Therefore, they make a lot of money on a few shipments. We, on the other hand, handle a large number of shipments, making a little profit on each. In addition, many overseas moving companies make their profits from packing and shipping door-to-door and are reluctant to handle small shipments. In fact, people can save a significant amount of money by packing their items themselves, shipping door-to-port and picking up the shipment at the destination terminal. We recommend shipping options that are truly beneficial to our customers, as we understand that price is an important factor when moving or shipping internationally from Japan.
Most of our clients choose us over other shipping companies to reduce their moving expenses, however, by reading the testimonials from our customers who moved with us, you will notice that it is actually personalized service we offer that they appreciate most rather than cheap moving cost.
Are international moving companies' services cheaper than Japan Post?
The truth is that no particular shipping or moving method is cost effective for shipments of all sizes and weights. If you are moving only one or a few small packages, shipping via Japan Post is definitely the cheapest option. However, postal services have weight/size limitations and shipping charges will increase significantly if you move more than a few small packages. There is a simple reason for this. If postal services’ shipping charges were competitive for all shipments, they would take away business from freight forwarders and international moving companies. They are not capable of handling all that large commercial cargo and relocations of individuals, while private shipping companies are not capable of handling numerous small packages. The keyword here is *interdependency*, i.e., the co-existence of postal services and freight forwarders/moving companies. Therefore, so that freight forwarders and JP can coexist, the government sets limits in terms of size and weight for postal services and makes their fees expensive when moving many packages.

This month in Japan - December, 2016
We have only one national holiday this month. It is the Emperor’s Birthday on December 23. Most companies in America and the West are closed around Christmas, and because of this national holiday Japanese companies are closed around Christmas as well.
The previous Emperor’s birthday was April 29 and this date still remains as a national holiday. November to early December is also the time of the year when trees in mountains and hills turn to read and yellow. Although you may be moving from Japan soon if you are looking at this website now, why not enjoy seeing beautiful autumns leaves before you move out of this beautiful country? Note: The end of the year, 2016 is approaching and naturally many people move out of Japan toward the end of the year. It is recommended to start preparing for your move as soon as possible if you are planning to move in December. In all countries, they have a large amount of inbound consignments and for this reason customs offices, airlines, shipping companies are all busy. While in most countries such as the U.S. or Europe, transportation companies and customs offices are closed only on Christmas and New Years Day, in Japan almost all companies including domestic pickup agents are closed for about a week during New Year Holidays.
