What is Little Japanese Corner?
Christine is a crane game addict and this site is not a for-profit business – rather, it is just a little side-project where she sells the prizes she has won to try and recoup the cost of playing. You will find authentic prize game plush and figures only obtainable from Japan.

Why should I buy from you and not from Japan and/or other sites?
All my items are here in the UK so all customs and other fees have already been paid for. Buying from Japan means you will pay £12 + 20% of the value of the item you paid for, if you paid more than £15 (approximately 2000 yen) for the item. It can also take up to a month to receive your item and if it is faulty it is very difficult to return the item.
One other advantage of buying from me is that because they are prizes, you can purchase way before normal shops get them in! The manufacturers release the items to crane game arcades in Japan around 2 or 3 months before general sale. Sometimes the shops don’t even get them because the items were too popular.
What are the shipping costs?
Shipping with the UK is free. I ship via Royal Mail 48 Tracked which is fully trackable and with full insurance in case of loss or damage. If you wish for me to ship through another means please do contact me however this may incur extra costs.
Shipping to the EU or USA starts from £15. These costs rise slowly however, so I always recommend buyers to purchase several items to spread the cost of shipping. You can contact me for a quote if you wish.
Where else do you sell?
