If you make a donation over $20 to Momiji through the check-out page, you will receive a tax receipt through the email you provided. Donations can also be made through the About Us page. Thank you so much for your support.
Why does the item I purchased look used?
Every item at Japonica has been donated to us therefore, they may have imperfections or evidence of previous love. All of our products will specify their condition details. We try to ensure this information is as accurate as possible however, we could have missed something. If you are truly unhappy with your item purchase, please contact us so we can rectify the situation.
What should I do if an item that I wanted is no longer available?
Although most of our items are unique and one-of-a-kind, we receive new items quite frequently. Please let us know if there is a particular item you are looking for and our staff/volunteers will keep an eye out.
Can I donate my Japanese items to Japonica?

How much is delivery?

How does delivery work?
When you place an order and select delivery at checkout, you must pay through the Paypal payment processor (NOTE: you do NOT need a PayPal account to pay). Once your order is placed, a member of our team will reach out to schedule a time to deliver. We prefer that someone is available to accept the delivery to ensure that your order makes it to you. Please keep in mind that we use the Momiji drivers to facilitate deliveries so this service may not be as fast as other couriers. We aim to make deliveries once a week.
Where will you deliver?
We will deliver to most locations in Toronto. We will deliver to various areas in the GTA: going as far north as Richmond Hill, as far east as Oshawa, and as far west as Mississauga. The best way to know if we will deliver to you is to fill out your address and postal code during check-out. If your location falls outside of our delivery radius, you will only see the pick-up option at check-out. We currently do not deliver outside of Ontario, Canada. If you would like more information about delivery or to suggest a new delivery location, please contact us.
