It is a one stop service centre to purchase and import directly from Japan makers at affordable quantity. Buyers just select product, place order, settle payment, and view order status. We shall handle the rest of the miserable procedure i.e. looking for new maker, looking for products requested by buyers, negotiate with makers, arrange shipment, receive and distribution item to buyers, and etc. No different charges for items and services, we include everything into ONE single price to ease our customers.

We also consider the possibility of expanding the business with showroom and minimarket/supermarket retail. We’re going to invest into R&D new hardware & software as part of preparation for new business module.
