Q. Why is my order delivered separately as regular parcel and chilled parcel?
A. To ensure freshness and the best taste, when refrigerated/frozen products are ordered at the same time as items which can be delivered as regular parcel, these items will be delivered separately.
Q. Why am I billed separately for regular parcel and chilled parcel?
A. When refrigerated/frozen products are ordered at the same time as items which can be delivered as regular parcel, these items will be delivered separately. And the delivery charges are billed accordingly.
Q. To receive free delivery, how much do I need to purchase?
A. Purchases of 6,500 yen (including tax) or more are delivered “free of charge” except Okinawa prefecture.
