Wow I haven’t seen the shipping fees for globally purchased asian music in a long time… I totally wouldn’t have been able to support Ayu as a teenager if those were the fees :-0

Yup, I hope i’ll be able to get her album this year but soooo many of my faves will be releasing towards the end of the year I might have to wait till all the releases are out so I can save up and buy them all at once

Not only because of Covid, to my country there is still ni airmal/EMS available from Japan because of the war, the normal flight route to Europe is over Russia, and nobody fly over Russia atm

I find that surprising because just now I've checked the Japan post page and the shipping to plenty of European countries like Poland, Spain, Czech, Slovakia, Austria is possible at least via airmail or EMS (Poland has no EMS while France does but no airmail there). I hope they will open the shipping routes for you!

Unless you buy a lot of stuff, shipping just kills you. And VAT is also charged more regularly now, sometimes (more often than not in the 00s) you'd get lucky and you didn't have to pay any fees, but now 9 times out of 10 I'm charged hefty import duties.
Interestingly enough, physical sales in kpop seemed to increase quite a lot in 2020-2021, but I guess that's partially because online fansigns became a thing during covid

Some shopping sites inflate the price to include the shipping fees in it, and then pretend like their shipping fees are low (*cough* cokodive *cough*, but iirc even yesasia used to do it with their jpop albums), but none of them lower it compared to the actual face value aka the prices at physical stores

While the war might've changed shipping method availability, I don't think I've noticed any shipping fee increase after it started... Although I wouldn't be surprised if it happened eventually, since petrol is involved
