Similarly they were waiting for the determination from a country.
Their reply is saying that all the parcels of addressing to the United States of 1 pounds or more may be the targets of indefinite shipment regulation.
Probably the Osaka international mail office is waiting for the determination from the United States and Japan.Can you tell this to your members?
If shipment regulation also makes us an object, we cannot do shipment.
Shipment regulation of the Christmas season gives the serious we damage for.
The information about shipment regulation may be updated by November 17.
If the person in charge of my post office had progress in the news about shipment regulation, he said to me that he was reported by Website of a Japanese post office.
I will check Website of a Japanese post office every day.
And I will tell it immediately to you, when a formal determination is reported.

Also, we are on "deferred payment" system so I think we're okay. This may cause some grief for others though.
So glad we are a fully incorporated Japanese company!

We just got off phone with post office. Yeah, this is pretty serious. If you don't have a dedicated postal account with Japan Post, they're not going to let you send anything over 453 grams. That's basically 3 bags of tea, lol. This includes EMS. In order to have a dedicated postal account, you have to have a real company here. We pay once a month, not every time we go to the post office, that is known as a "deferred" account. Since they know you and you are not some Joe coming to the window, you are safe. So probably people like Ippodo, Hibikian, O-Cha.com, etc are safe. We shall see, but this has the potential to shake things up a bit I think.

Probably won't be too easy to register at the post office if you aren't a registered company in Japan with a bank account.
