All Japan Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2018
Just wish the shipping wasn't a mess if you're not local - £10 starting is a bit much.
I absolutley love black Thunder bars!!
Interesting although only available for C&C to those in London near a store...
these are delicious
Some Japanese colleagues bring these to work. Lovely
Things are so over priced in the Japan centre. If you went else where then you could buy your own noodles with the change left over from the shopping. I can understand it if you were buying products that were only available in the japan centre. Check out some of the chinese/korean supermarkets first before going there.
Looking for a lime green version from Japan. Any suggestions where I can get one for a good price please.
Fantastic console to own. I have the blue imported from Japan in may this year. Hacked with H-Encore. 256GB micro sd (sd2vita). Works perfect. Holds all my ps1,PSP and vita games. Got around 18gb left, so going to fill the rest today lol
Homebrew scene is great atm with ports being released: Half-life Return to castle wolfenstein Quake 3 Thanks to hardware acceleration being released this year (vitaGL) the scene is really taking off. Although I think it is coming to come to a stage where the developers are going to jump onto the switch homebrew scene (once hardware accerlation is released from a dev)
Lol my bad it was meant for the guy with vega avatar
What i quoted isnt actual an opinion. I'm not sure what you mean by your response!
As a shenmue super fan, got this from Amazon Japan . Supposedly comes with a extra poster. I really wanted a special edition. it's pricey,but honestly ,it's the only game ill ever buy a special edition from, so what the heck. Im putting my money where my mouth is, and funding Sega to continue with the franchise
There is a chance you might get a £10+ handling fee from royal mail once it has been delivered
I just went through the paypal payment and payed for standard postage. I think it was about fifty pounds in total
To most this isn't a good deal, as with customs fees etc. this jumps to like £65, but for a Shenmue fan like me I had to jump on it.
Any fees calculated at checkout
They are 50p in poundworld although not many left open so heat
Got mine today, thanks!
This is only sensible if you think it could be a pricing error. No idea why people post obvious pricing errors on here as all you're doing is ensuring that it will definitely get flagged up and cancelled.
I wish I did the same before posting my Xbox 1X deal.
lol. cheeky LOL
and likely have a massive black ring on your photos - you'd want a step up ring
As in the pic so fresh cherries, a couple of batons of freshly chopped ginger, a wedge of lime squeezed on to the ice before you lob it in. You can obviously use whatever tonic floats your boat but I found the Fever Tree clementine and cinnamon complimented it best but unfortunately it's a seasonal one they only release around Christmas time so there's very little chance of sourcing any at the minute.
What would you suggest having it with?
Ridiculously gorgeous gin that needs to be complimented with the appropriate mixology, not something the Bombay Sapphire mass-if will be able to get their heads round but then again there's no accounting for taste I suppose (skeptical) Available at this price from your local Waitrose at the moment by the way (y)
You beat me to it! I'm sure it'll stream anything if you drink enough of it. :D
Anybody know where I can get some "craft" tonic, "craft" lemon and "craft" ice to go with this. Oh and I'd better get a "craft" glass to drink it from.
Thailand is closer to Japan ;)
What others have you tried out of interest? How's it taste and look?
Mines arrived today , not that great compared to others I have tried. But can't argue about price. As the others where more expensive.
Not bad at all I paid 19 quid for two 50g jars almost two years ago. The matcha was fine. A bit bland perhaps. I don't think it was as good as the Vitalife matcha I had. Not organic though. Currently using The Tea Makers of London ceremonial grade matcha: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ceremonial-Japanese-Matcha-Tea-Powder100g/dp/B00DPNIXFI/ Which I received as a gift. I've found their normal teas poor (I've tried their Jasmine and Genmaicha), but the matcha is good. Bit more vibrant and more flavour. It's a deeper colour than both the Vitalife and PureChimp - especially the latter I think. Whatever you do, don't get Sevenhills matcha. It's junk - very dull and hay like. You want a vibrant green, no hint of brown or yelllow colour. Best and most affordable was buying Ippodo matcha in Japan. All grades tasted great. When I asked about grades they just said the cheaper ones were more bitter, not lower quality. Bitterness can be nice. I couldn't taste the difference between their most expensive and second most, so bought mostly the second most expensive I think. Might look into getting it delivered to the UK actually. Shame about the value of sterling. If you want quality I'd try here: https://www.ochaandco.com/ Their genmaicha is fantastic. Direct from japan - arrives quickly though.
Why is this still live when it appears no-one has managed to find a way to buy at this price?
Don't usually play video games but I play this almost everyday. It's great online single player, it's great playing against my wife and it's great to take to family events on a small projector. Highly recommend it.
Nevermind anymore, I don't think anyone managed to get this
^^^ Doesn't work anymore. Tried all kinds of cards including Revolut, nothing works. I feel this should be expired to save people wasting an hour of their life trying to buy it.
Credit, debit or prepaid; cards outside of Japan do not work. It has been confirmed that the only methods that work are Japanese gift cards or a Japanese PayPal.
Used VPN and got the game.
Didn't work yesterday but tried again this morning and it worked! Thanks for sharing - heat added.
Really!? I thought it was his reaction to seeing Melissa Mccarthy naked
Bonkers game. Definitely not a showcase of the power of the Xbox One, but it's certainly worth a look for free if you keep your expectations VERY low! :)
Not quite as cheap as before, (and I do like the geometric design dial) but GIFTM (5%) code works with this watch, may work with others.
I'm all good thanks I don't want another Seiko 5 as I already own 2, great watches though! (y)
I did see some (on reddit I think) saying that if you really want a watch but want to haggle a little wriggle-room, you could try Live Chat. No idea if it will work, but worth a bash if you have time.
Yep my 5's on there, down to £100 (y) Good selection and cracking prices on some
£71 now this morning :) Assuming Creation's search engine is accurate, here's some more "SNK" model Japan-Made watches: http://www.creationwatches.com/products/search/results.html?search_in_description=1&keyword=snk+japan

Far as I'm aware you've always been able to unfollow things on your news feed. I've had my switch a year. Usually you can do it by clicking on the news you've no interest in and press the + button and click unfollow. Or go into system settings and news feed channels...select the ones you wish to unfollow
is this an option now as it didn't used to be when I had my first console.
Keep your Japanese account but unsubscribe from the Japanese Nintendo feed. Simple.
I thought as much as those were the only 2 games that were listed, although I did wonder whether I was doing something wrong as this is the first time I've looked to download via the GWG. Thanks, EQL.
It looks like they changed things over and are only listing two games (Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia and Splosion Man): https://www.xbox.com/ja-JP/live/games-with-gold?xr=shellnav It'll probably be back, keep an eye out in future months. WIkipedia changes seem to suggest it happened around/before the 21st. Expire this?
Hi EQL, can you advise whether Slime Rancher is still available to download free with Xbox live please? When accessing the Japanese store it's showing as requiring payment to purchase the game. Am I doing something wrong? Many thanks.
Thanks for the reminder. Slime Rancher is available 16th June to the 30th June as a replacement for the Games with Gold freebie Smite Gold Bundle (in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Games_with_Gold_games#Xbox_One Lego Indiana Jones 2 is now also available free with GWG. Slime Rancher was free with GWG in Aug 2017 (and via Japan and Taiwan in Oct 2017). For those whose account is inactive, you can buy Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass for £1: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/1-month-xbox-live-gold-1-month-xbox-game-pass-100-inactive-accounts-xbox-store-2950696
Xbox One X enhanced too :D
Matcha (Camellia Sinensis grown in shade) for caffeine and taste, Sencha (Camellia Sinensis grown in full sun) for antioxidants. Is that not true?
£25kg for £10 here
Looks like sam_of_london has been put on the naughty step and this deal has been expired. I was maybe going to vote hot on it as well. Maybe. Oh well.
I've tried https://www.borntea.com/. Not the same tea as this deal but still quality & cheaper. Still expensive though.
My comment was tongue in cheek... (flirt)
Wow didn't know beat Takeshi directed it, will have to check this out thanks!
Agreed the soundtrack is excellent. Simple but super effective and charming. I'd recommend it to anyone looking to get into Asian cinema but don't know where to start.
Enjoyed this film. Well worth checking out! The Joe Hisaishi soundtrack is worth a listen too.
I think it was around 16,400.
No, not unless you hack it
Can you remap the X and O buttons for the menu?
How much in yen was it?
thanks. I just hope I would be able to get a similar deal by December of this year.
I know it's a ridiculous measure. Anyway picked this up and it's brilliant. I recommend it to everyone who like 2d platformers. The music is superb too!
Nobody should subscribe to that.
No you don't, we were all provided with temporary steam keys and the minimum specs are so low it'll run on basically anything. It's not ideal but to say you can't play it is basically an outright lie.
You can't use PayPal to buy from eshop Japan unfortunately, you'd have to open a Japanese account on your switch then buy eshop credit from somewhere like play Asia but the credit isn't cheap so you don't really gain anything from buying from Japan. Your best bet is to use revolut, there's no fee's & you can use it in most countries, Russia or south Africa are normally the cheapest countries revolut works in.
I can't remember to be honest it was for a psp before they were released in the UK. And it was delivered by dhl at my choice never again! (skeptical)
£15 and you’re correct. You’ll be good if you order one game but if order two based on my experience there will be taxes to be paid. https://www.gov.uk/goods-sent-from-abroad/tax-and-duty
Memory card still expensive
I didn't even know Dragon Quest Heroes 2 was out on the Vita! https://www.play-asia.com/dragon-quest-heroes-ii-futago-no-ou-to-yogen-no-owari-chinese-su/13/70988b Dayummmmm!
Correct me if I'm wrong but there is no import tax on anything under ~£17 or something if I recall? This is from when I was importing from USA so I can't remember if it's country specific. If I'm correct it's only the postage you'd need to pay with no fear of fees.
Full price in Thurrock, Grays aldi :(
