About International Shipping

If you would like to ship your canvas overseas, please use an external service called "Tenso.com."
By using "Tenso.com", you can receive your items outside of Japan.
To use Tenso.com, you need to register as a member of elu and Tenso.com separately.

What is Tenso.com ?

 
This is an international shipping service.
When a customer living overseas purchases a canvas product on elu, the product will be sent through Tenso.com's warehouse in Japan before being delivered to the customer.
