Online Halal Food Shops On Rakuten Japan
There are 3 online stores under the "Shop" on the website menu bar; a Turkish Grocery Store, an Indian Grocery Store and a Muslim Hijab Store. They are selling daily necessities and popular products. If you couldn’t find what you are looking for on their listed products, go ahead and checkout the List of Halal Products Online in Japan.
It is good news that there are many Halal shops in Japan and the number is growing. But what do you do if you are looking for a certain product – how can you find it online? Just by looking at the shops’ names you can’t figure out what they are selling. Do you have to go through a long list and visit the websites one by one?
To solve this dilemma, we have created pages for different category of products including Halal Sweets, Dairy Products and Japanese Sauces like Wasabi, Shoyu and Miso which are sold online on Rakuten. All items have English and also Japanese links, which has a photo attached as well. When you click on a link, you will be redirected to the shop’s website where you can complete your purchase.
On the same pages we have listed the shops which are selling these products, categorized by the type of the products they sell; for example, Grocery, Confectionery, and Bakery and so on. The products on the pages are chosen from these shops’ collections.
When you don’t find a product on our pages, you can click on the links and visit the shops' sites directly to see if they have what you are looking for. You will find the links to these online stores at the top of all product pages indicating what they sell; (example: ► Hasel Foods → Groceries), similar to the links below. You may find name of the same shop in few categories on different pages, which means they are selling variety of products.
As for payment; so far if you use the English links, because products are sold on Rakuten Global Market where most products can be shipped to overseas, the only available payment method is credit card. But if you use the Japanese links you have other options including Bank Transfer, Cash on Delivery, Apple Pay, and transfer from Seven-Eleven or Lawson.
Experience Shopping On Rakuten
One of the benefits of shopping on Rakuten marketplace which makes the customer’s experience more convenient is the fact that you need to register your name and address just one time to become a member, and then you can search and do your shopping from any of the 40,000 stores on Rakuten including the Halal shops. Whereas you have to register or fill in your contacts separately when you want to shop online from any individual website.
Normally, when you buy a product, at the end of the process the shipping fee will be added to your purchase. But depending on the type and price of the product you purchase the store may not charge you for shipping fee.
If you are going to buy more than one product, you’d better buy them from the same store if possible. This way you will pay one shipping fee, or the shop may consider "Free Shipment" if the order price reaches to a certain level – different shops have different policy. The postage normally starts from 540 yen.
Normally, what you buy online in Japan will be delivered to you in 24-48 hours, with some exceptions – delivery in some regions like Hokkaido or Okinawa may take longer.
Note: Generally, some of the online Halal stores in Japan, besides selling Halal products are selling other products which are not Halal. Always look for the Halal mark/logo on the product’s image or the word Halal (ハラール = حلال), in the description before you make the purchase.
