Akihabarashop.jp is now OPEN!

We have now re-launched the web shop with new design, additional url (akishop.jp) and even more great products at quality prices!
What you get when you buy from us is that we buy directly from the manufacturer and then ship it from Japan directly to the customer. Picture of your order before shipping is sent out to the customer as standard.
If you have any questions then feel free to post them in this thread and I will try my best to answer them.

Arigato :).

We cannot be held responsible for customs or other local taxes imposed when a parcel reaches its destination, please find out what applies to your country before ordering.

    If it is shipping straight from japan how much do you think shipping would be for a stick and 8 buttons to the us? An estimate on shipping is all I ask.

    That GT-0 circular restrictor looks intriguing. I've never heard of it untill now. Anyone have any experience with these? Are they better than the octagonal restrictor plates?

    Hey Per, good job on getting the site up. It seemed like a long time coming, but I'm glad it's up. I have a couple of questions though. I know your status report says your next order date is Feb 19th, but when is the latest someone can put in an order before that date so that it will be included? If you're placing an order morning of Feb 19th your time zone in Sweden, do people need to have orders in by say evening of Feb 18th your time zone? And how often do you plan on making orders? Weekly? Bi-weekly? Thanks in advance.

    The GT-O is for the Sanwa JLW-joystick, The OctagonalRestrictor is for Sanwa JLF-joystick.

    Right now I am thinking of taking orders and sending them away every 2weeks, this will make it easier for my contact in Japan because he has a regular dayjob also.
    About the time, time is calculated so that when it is Feb 19 in Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) the orders will be sent away to Sanwa/Seimitsu. Clock is here:

    Hi man, thanks for all the kind words but I can not take credit for the webpage, I ow it all to the swedish forum member Mayhem. If you ever need a stylish and functional webpage he is the one to ask.
    Also, you are welcome with your order :).

    You can do it using pay pal. When you go to pay, whatever amount of Yen you need, just pay that amount and pay pal will convert it for you.

    As of right now you'll have to ask for a quote, but detailed shipping tables will be added to the site soon. We just thought it'd be better to launch as soon as possible and fill in the gaps as we go along. (I designed and developed the site for TheRealNeoGeo.)

    You have payed everything, that is what the 500yen handlingfee was for (shipping from Sanwa/Seimitsu + packing the orders and ship it). So you don`t have to pay anything more.

    As I recall you have chosen EMS-shipping, yes? So yeah, if the picture of your order is a`ok it is sent tomorrow (today in Japan, it is Feb 24th) and you have it on Tuesday-Thursday I think (hope :)).

    Are you going to update the Picture and Tracking links on the bottom of the orders?
    When can I expect my stuff, I dont' really need an exact date or anything, just an estimated time period.

    Thanks for all the great work!

    I am going to yes, but I have not recieved any pics yet. But don`t worrie, they will come. I post in this thread when it is all done.

    Shippingtime is as follows:
    EMS= 3-5 workingdays (sometimes 2workingdays).
    AirMail= About a week, two weeks.

    Also, my friend who buys the stuff works 14h/day (Monday-Friday) so it takes a little while sometime but have no fear :).

    UPDATING SOON!

    Pictures don`t work because I have not gotten them yet, I got an email from him today saying he will send them today. Also, when it is sent I will put the real trackingnumber on there.
    And there is no trackingnumber for AirMail (you chose AirMail right?). But you will see pic of it before it is shipped.
