It has been 2 years since the spring of 2020 that anyone has visited Japan. With their borders currently closed to tourists, no one is able to say for sure when Japan will ease their travel restrictions to the rest of the world.
Whether we love their culture and lifestyle, scenery, fashion, shopping, anime and especially food, Japan lovers can only hope for that day to come when the country reopens its border to international tourists.
There are still some things we can do to experience a slice of Japan at this moment - by shopping from Japan as if you were there.
Enjoy a bit of retail therapy from home with these online Japanese stores for fashion, skincare and cosmetics, home and lifestyle items, souvenirs, and more.
Some of these online retailers only ship domestically in Japan so be sure to use vPost to ship your purchases conveniently back to Australia!
