Domestic Shipping Cost

At the time of this blog post, Surugaya offers free shipping if the total is over 1,500 yen (about $15.00 USD). Even if the total is under 1,500 yen, shipping is reasonable. One important point to note here is that Surugaya takes about 1 to 2 weeks before they ship the items. The reason? They have items in different store locations and they have to first gather all the items first prior to the shipment.
