About Our Products

  • What should I do if the product I received is different from the product image shown on the website?
  • Since we often list our products before the final product is released, most of the photos shown are of prototypes or samples provided by the manufacturer. There may be some discrepancies between the prototypes and what is actually sold as mass-produced products. In addition, some products require hand-painting at the factory, which may also cause individual differences. These are not considered manufacturer defects. Occasionally, small defects may be found in the paint or parts of the product. These are naturally occurring inconsistencies that occur in the process of mass production and are not considered defects.

About Ordering

  • What is a Pre-Order?
  • Pre-ordering is the process of pre-ordering products before they go on sale. Your inventory is secured upon completion of payment. The product will be shipped as soon as it is ready to be shipped after its release. In rare cases, we may not be able to secure the product due to a delay in the release date or a reduction in the amount of orders from the manufacturer. In such cases, we will contact you again. If we are unable to secure the product, we are sorry, but we may have to cancel your order. In this case, the full amount will be refunded.
  • Can I order products that are not on the site?
  • LapinNoir.JP also sells products not listed on our website. Please send us your request by email through the Order Request page.

The requested item will only be listed if it is available in Japan.
  • How do I cancel?
  • Items may be cancelled at any time prior to shipment. In the event of cancellation, a refund of 5% of the purchase price will be deducted. Items that have already been shipped or paid for in installments cannot be cancelled. If you wish to cancel, please contact our Customer Support: support@t-ark.biz with your order number, account name, and product name.
  • Why do prices fluctuate?
  • Products listed on LapinNoir.JP are based on Japanese yen. Therefore, product prices are constantly changing due to fluctuations in exchange rates. Also, since prices are determined based on the market price in Japan, prices are always fluctuating.
  • Are the products you handle authentic?
  • LapinNoir.JP purchases from manufacturers in Japan. Therefore, there is no possibility of counterfeit products being mixed in. Even for used products, our professional staff inspects the products before purchasing them, so there is no possibility of counterfeit products being mixed in.

  • I asked for something to confirm my order, but have not received a reply.
    For example, if your name or shipping address appears garbled on our end, or if you believe you have accidentally placed a double order (received 2 identical orders in one night), we will confirm this by email before proceeding with your order. If we do not receive a reply, we will cancel your order after a certain period of time.
  • There is an unresolved matter from a previous order.
    We cannot accept orders from customers who have unresolved issues from previous orders. After the issue is resolved, the order will be accepted again.
  • The product itself has been discontinued or there is a sudden shortage of supply due to a problem on the part of the manufacturer or distributor. In such cases, the customer will be notified. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and ask for your understanding.
