How to pay ==> Click here

By 31 March 2019.....Please order our Print + Frame service in Japan. in order our team in Japan to print your work and put frame in time and deliver to the gallery for you . Under our rule, you cannot ship original work to the gallery in Kyoto as it will surely be taxed by customs and the gallery cannot deal such issue and pay tax for each artist unless you can bring original work with you to the gallery. In this way you can save lots of money (return shipping costs + tax) and time and avoid damage during shipping.  Frame cost in Japan is very expensive and will go up from the New Year and also the value of UK's GBP has been decreasing caused by BREXIT  problem so that we must raise the fee of Print + Frame Service from the New Year so we recommend you to ask the service before the end of this year if possible.   All you have to do is to send us high quality image (300 dpi jpg) and select size of the frame and our team in Japan will do the rest for you. We suggest to select standard or large frame size as the gallery is not large. See details and how to order the service   here
