Refunds and Returns

Please refer to the unique refund policy on the product you want to purchase. Return and refund policies are determined by our vendors/sellers.

It is possible to cancel or make changes to your order before it is dispatched.

– To cancel your order, please contact us and we will cancel the order for you immediately.

Returning Unwanted Items

Japan Nakama operates a returns policy in compliance with the UK Consumer Contracts Regulations, EU consumer rights and US Federal Trade Commission regulations, allowing you to return any item within 14-28 days of receiving delivery of your order (depending on the vendor and the location).

Please note that any postage costs incurred when returning your items during this period will be at your own cost, unless the item is damaged, or was sent in error.

If an order was placed with a promotional discount on postage, this may affect your refund amount if your total spend is no longer above the delivery offer requirements.

This policy does not extend to any items which have been opened or whose seal has been broken, perishable items (such as chilled, bakery or vegetable items), sealed audio, video recordings or computer software (which have been unsealed), and also does not include the refund of services carried out by Japan Nakama as part of your contract (eg handling costs). Items must be returned in a pristine and resalable condition. This policy does not affect your statutory rights.


Refunds Processing Time and Method

Upon receipt and inspection of the returned item, we will process your refund within 5-10 business days. The refund will be issued to your original payment method unless otherwise specified.


Packaging for Returns

Ensure the item is packed in a way that prevents damage during transit. If the item arrives damaged due to inappropriate packaging, it might affect the refund.


Return Labels and Tracking

For incorrect or damaged items, we will provide return labels. We recommend using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance for returning items to ensure we receive your returned item.


Quality Check

All returned items will undergo a quality check before a refund is processed. This includes checking if the item is unused, in the same condition it was received, and in the original packaging.


International Returns

For customers outside the UK, Europe and the United States, please contact us directly to discuss the return procedure.


Exceptions to our Return Policy

Some items cannot be returned, such as gift cards, customised items, and items on sale.


Damaged Items

Our vendors/sellers are very careful when they pack the boxes, delicate items can occasionally get damaged during transit. If you have received any damaged items, please accept our apologies and contact us as soon as possible so we can arrange a refund or resend the item. We will require photographic evidence to support your claim.


Missing or Incorrect Items

If you find that any item(s) are missing from your order:

– Please first carefully check the full contents of your parcel.

– If you still cannot find your missing item(s), please contact us immediately so that we can arrange either a full refund or resend your item(s).

If you have received an incorrect item(s):

– Please first carefully check your delivery note and see if your incorrect item(s) are not substitutes for out-of-stock items.
