About Payment and Shipping

 About shipping cost

From the Meiji era to the Showa era, we introduce the labels that decorated the containers of sake, soap, sweets, tobacco, medicine, cosmetics, canned goods, etc. in all colors.

A number of novel designs that reflect the background of the times. A label is the Japanese version of his English word LABEL, which refers to a piece of printed material with a trademark or advertisement printed on a product container. With the development of printing technology, it is now possible to print directly on the container itself, making it difficult to peel off the label and collect it. The labels posted here reflect the times well, and you will be surprised by the freshness of their sophisticated designs. Here is the world of learning new from the past to advance tomorrow.
