The state of emergency has been lifted in Japan, but the international logistic hasn't improved much. Japan Post has suspended all shipments to more than 150 countries, FedEx shipments are suspended for all destinations, DHL has implemented a significant price surcharge and UPS increased prices for small packages. Long story short: most orders are shipped and delivered normally, but not everywhere and oversized packages are complicated to handle. Please refer to the table below to see if your order can ship and with which carrier/shipping method.

Despite those limitations, and thanks to our unparalleled logistic, we are maintaining a high turnover with dozens of orders shipped everyday. Our entire team is focused on logistic issues and customer support, entirely committed to deliver as many customers as possible with the most afforable shipping solution. We can assure you that the very large majority of shipped orders are delivered without any trouble and we would like to express our gratitude for your support in this difficult time.

  • Free shipping options can still be selected at checkout, however, if described as "SUSPENDED", your order will be prepared and packed, then put on hold until shipments reopen (probably July at the earliest) without further notice.
  • Emergency surcharges are additional fees that we may request for oversized packages after your order has been placed (no charge without your consent). We will not charge the emergency surcharge for orders above 30,000 YEN containing several weapons.
  • Orders put on hold as a result of your choice of a suspended shipping method as defined in the table below will be subject to a 2,000 YEN cancellation fee, should you want to cancel the order later on. (Except for custom made orders that are non cancellable, whatever the reason)
  • If your country is not on the list, please contact us prior to placing your order! Failure to do so might result in your order put on hold without further notice.

Zekken, Nafuda & Name Plate

Iaido & Kendo Zekken

A Zekken (ゼッケン) is a piece of cloth that shows the name, number and/or logo of an athlete in competition. It is also called a Nafuda (name plate). In Kendo, it is also called a "Tare-name" because the Zekken takes the form of a small bag with an elastic at the top that is placed on the center of the Tare. In Iaido, the Zekken is a piece of fabric, that is fixed on the left chest during competitions or demonstrations.

As professionals of embroidery services related to martial arts, we offer embroidered Zekken for both Iaido and Kendo. Our Iaido Zekken can be attached with magic tape as an option, which comes pretty handy if you need multiple Zekken (different Dojo) or if you want to be able to take it off for exams. For Kendo, we offer a double sided Zekken that can be embroidered on both sides, which may be useful too if you practice in different Dojo or if you want a Western and a Japanese version for instance.

To order a Zekken along with an Iaido Jacket, please use the Zekken option that is displayed on the Iaido Jacket product page. The stand alone products below will not be attached to a jacket, even if ordered simultaneously.
