About Us

Konnichiwa! Welcome to Japan Retro Direct. I know that might sound like it's a big company but actually it's just me and my rooms full of retro games. I have been living and working in Japan for over a decade and have been into games my entire life. Japan is a paradise for retro video games. I have learned a lot about them and I would like to help you know more about them too.
I have seen the crazy prices a lot of Japanese games are selling for online and I know those prices are keeping a lot of people away from trying imports, which is a shame. I try to offer low, fair prices and charge as little for shipping as I can. In this way I hope to share my hobby with you and make a little money which I will reinvest into my own collection.

If you have any questions about the games I am selling, just ask. I have played all of them (which explains why I list stuff so slowly) and I am happy to answer any questions you might have.

Also, if there is something from Japan that you are looking for, send me a message. I might be able to get it for you. You can contact me through my facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/JapanRetroDirect Send me a PM there and (timezones willing) I can usually get right back to you. Also you might want to "like" the facebook page to keep updated with all the stuff I am listing before another gamer snatches them up ;)

About the Points System:

For every $20 you spend you will get 1 point. Each point is basically functions like $1 in store credit for your next order. So if you spend, for example, $100, you will get 5 points. You can use these point on your next order to get $5 off. In a way it is almost like getting 5% off. There are a few things to note though.
Points can only be earned on purchases where the value is $20 or more not including shipping or other discounts. So if buy an item that costs $18.99 + $5 shipping, even though the order total is $23.99 the order would not qualify for a point. If you order is $45.99 + $15 shipping you would get 2 points for the items but even though the total is over $60 you would not get 3 points.

Points will only be added to user accounts so if you buy with "guest checkout" I have no account to apply the points to.

Points have no cash value they can only be redeemed for future purchases.

I cannot accept points for special orders, only items currently on the site.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I would be happy to answer them. People have already been earning and using points on the shop and so far the response has been very positive so I hope this plan will be something you enjoy.
