Tenso received my Amazon Japan order

Amazon notified me they shipped my order.

Tenso notified me they received my Amazon CD. My shipment will cost $20 U.S. I was surprised it was so much. That’s the same shipping fee Amazon Japan charges for Express Mail Service. From the testimonials, I’ve heard shipping was $5 dollars. Later that day I logged on to their site and paid for my shipping.

Tenso ships my order. They gave me a tracking number along with link to track it. I couldn’t get the link to work so I navigated the JP Post office site. This is the link to enter your tracking number: Individual International Mail Search by Item Number.  As of now my package is still at the Tokyo post office. Tenso has a shipping calculator at the bottom of their page.  I’ll keep posting Tenso follow ups.

  1. I’m curious how you entered your tenso address into amazon? I last used them in 2010, and their address has apparently changed. Back then, they had an image showing what you put into which field on amazon’s address book page. Now, they just have everything on one line, and I can’t figure out what goes into which field on amazon. (I must admit, I am fairly illiterate in Japanese, which does not help.)

    Thanks!
