When you try to purchase Japanese fishing products, buying them at actual Japanese web stores is usually good option as they can be cheaper than imported products. In AUS, this is very obvious as the imported items can cost you double - triple than the actual sold price in Japan.
But for overseas, shipping can be one of the biggest issue either. Because, most of them, especially small shops, does not ship items to overseas. They can only ship them in Japan.
This Tenso.com, is an incredible international shipping service that solves this big barrier.
Once you register to Tenso.com then you will get a physical Japanese address that you can ship purchased items from any of Japanese local web stores. Once Tenso.com receives your parcel(s) then they notify you via registered email. You then just need to login to its website and pay, then they will send parcels to your actual oversea address.
They usually use Japan Post services because it is cheaper option, and you can even select the shipping type from EMS (Express Mail Service) / AIR (airmail) / SAL (Economy Airmail) / Surface Mail (shipping).
