We are a specialized shop for Japan import books powered by Samurai Media Works. We are located in Tokyo and the largest distributor of Japanese publications in cross-border e-commerce sector.


Are the products BRAND NEW condition?

Yes, all our products are BRAND NEW and have been stored in our warehouses after delivery from publishers or suppliers.


Why are books on AKIBA EXPRESS INC affordable than anywhere else?

We have established direct partnerships with over 50 major publishers and book suppliers, enabling us to source products at reasonable prices.

While many other sellers on platfroms engage in "retail arbitrage," purchasing inventory from retail sources and selling them at higher prices due to additional intermediate costs, we can deliver Japanese products, reducing the unnecessary costs, and passing on the savings to our customers.
