Japanese-only Retailers

For online retailers that will only ship domestically to Japan, an international forwarding service needs to be used so that you can receive items purchased from them.

One such notable and reliable forwarding service is Tenso. Using the service, customers will receive a Tenso address which will then be entered at the online retailer when making an order. Once Tenso receives the item, it will then be shipped to the customer’s actual address, outside of Japan.

Another Japanese international forwarding service is Goyokikiya.

There are a plethora of other Japanese-only online retailers, of course, but this is the one that importers are likely to pay attention to the most.

This post will be updated as more information and listings become available for Persona 5.

Note that the Japanese version of Persona 5 will not have English subtitles or English audio. Persona 5 will be region free, so it will be compatible with any PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 console, regardless of region.

Persona 5 is slated to be released for the PS3 and PS4 in Japan on September 15, 2016, with a 2016 North American release date.
