Japan Post EMS delivery fast except…

I’ve had packages arrive the same day they left Japan. Amazing! However, US Customs can delay it 45 days. I’ve read online your package sits in a warehouse on pallets without even being inspected.

US Customs snagged my latest package. I’ll update this if they really screw me.  It’s been been there for 3 days now.

USPS can track your packages from Japan

I just found out.  Tenso had sent me a EMS tracking number along with a link to the JP Post to track it.  Well, following your package through JP Post dead ends once it leaves Japan.  USPS can track your package too using the same tracking number.  USPS can even track your package in Japan.  Just enter your EMS tracking number on USPS’s Track & Confirm page.
