Let’s take a look in Rakuten!

You can right-click and translate the web page into your native language after you enter Rakuten.

If you don’t have any specific wishlist, you can wander on the “Bestseller” page. This page shows the top-selling products in Japan and it’s categorized. Therefore, you can check it out according to your preference.

The left column on the website shows all the product categories. You can choose what product you want according to your needs. Rakuten classified all the products into 16 genres, and each of them gets at least one subcategory. It ensures you can find the items that fit you most.

Take women’s T-shirts as an example, and you can see all the best-selling styles and items rated higher than 4.0. Purchasing the top-rated items lowers the chances of being a scam.

The left-hand column can apply different filters like size, brand, color, etc. to narrow down your search results. Also, you can check out those items that do not require a local delivery fee.

A tip for you: Don’t be overwhelmed by the countless product catalogs. You can rank the items according to their price and reviews by clicking the right-hand menu.

If you are looking for a particular brand/item, you can use the search bar at the top of the page. Simply click the search icon in red after you enter the name/model/brand of the item.

Tips: We suggest you use Google for the brand’s Japanese name before searching on Rakuten. More options will be shown.
