Buying from Tozando
Hi all,

I have just ordered a gi from Tozando but it gave no indication as to how long the shipping would take. Anybody have an idea ? How long did you have to wait ?

I think I got my bokken a week before the shipment date...

Re: Buying from Tozando
Some folks at my dojo are thinking of ordering a bunch of Tozando weapons. Any reviews of their jos & bokkens?

Jo and Bokken from Tozando are quite good. Very strong. However, Iwama style bokken is a little bit big and heavy for ladies. And it's a little bit bulky for whom want bokken that look like a real sword. Tozando send goods through EMS and mostly it'll take less than one week. I think Tozando will accept bulk order but you should ask for the UK custom first.

Re: Buying from Tozando
I like tozando very much....never purchased weapons from them though...I bought my first Hakama from them many years ago and still wear it every time I practice...good quality...good customer service...cannot comment on the shipping time though as I'm at an APO mailing address which only adds time to the shipping....

We ordered about three weeks ago, but the shipping date was the tenth of February, and we haven't had confirmation of it yet. I am waiting for my first hakama, and I'm finding it hard to patient.

Never seems to take very long. A few weeks aware that you may get clobbered for import tax so may have to pay more than you think for your orders.

Re: Buying from Tozando
I received an email from them today with a ship date off the 23. I dont know if that is when I should get the goods or when they are going to ship it from Japan. I presume it is the latter.

I have also ordered another gi from J Milom as a spare and to use until I get the one from Tozando.

Re: Buying from Tozando
Just to bring this thread to a close. I received the gi today, nine days after ordering it. I did not have to pay any import duties.

Very happy with my purchase and will buy from them again.
