For an in-depth look in how to address a parcel to Japan, you can refer to this useful addressing guide put together by the Universal Postal Union.

What items can I send?

The Japanese imports office follows the same regulations as the majority of the world in terms of which items can and cannot be brought into the country. Banned items include:

  • Print and film materials deemed obscene (including pornography)
  • Explosives
  • Illegal drugs
  • Materials that infringe copyright

For the best information on postal legislation in Japan, check with the Japanese customs office. Plus, it’s worth familiarising yourself with our prohibited items list to ensure that your item can legally be carried in UK post as well.
