Shipping an authentic Japanese sword to the UK 

 For those who live in the UK, thank you very much for being interested in owning an authentic Japanese sword. We appreciate your interest in Japanese culture and history. On this page, we would like to explain how to ship an authentic Japanese sword to the UK.

Shipping Forwarder

 While we use EMS ships an authentic Japanese sword to a few countries, we will use a different forwarder for those who live in the UK for the time being. We used to ship many authentic Japanese swords to the UK via EMS. However, due to the current change in the regulations of Parcel Force, EMS can no longer accept any edged tools. We do business with a private forwarder that can arrange airport-to-airport delivery to Heathrow Airport or Manchester Airport. If we arrange this shipment, we will ask you to pick up the sword at one of the airports, making customs clearance.
