Rabbit Wooden Toy


This delightful Japanese toy was a favorite of the imperial Princess Aiko who may one day become the Empress of Japan, if the law is changed and women are allowed to succeed to the Chrysanthemum Throne.

Rabbit Wooden Toy

Beautifully painted, the rabbit softens rice to make rice cakes as you pull the string.

Airmail & EMS To The USA From Japan

We have calculated that around 3%-5% of all goods sent by normal airmail from Japan to the USA never arrive or arrive very late. They disappear or are delayed in the US Mail.

We strongly recommend that customers choose EMS, which is insured and can be checked online.

EMS is more expensive but gives extra peace of mind and takes 4-5 days for delivery to anywhere in the US. For heavier items EMS becomes cheaper than the normal air mail prices.

Thus for a TK16 Master kendama sent from Japan to the USA here are the postage charges.

Airmail 520 yen
EMS 1200 yen
