A Note on Shipping & Insurance

Updated: Aug 11, 2022

As collectors ourselves, we understand how critical it is for your anime art purchase to arrive safely into your hands. We once purchased an irreplaeable original drawing done by an all-time favorite animator from a collector in France. Due to poor packing and ham-fisted postal workers, it arrived with a hole through the middle. Crushing dissapointment!

To ensure that the anime art you purchase from Soul of Tokyo arrives safely from our gallery we carefully package your original anime artwork before shipping. Even with the most trusted delivery services, it’s difficult to control factors such as handling, weather and shifting during transit.

Safe Packing Steps

7. Larger cels are packed in bigger boxes for protection.

Despite all these efforts, rarely a package will still be damaged or lost in shipping (about 4- or 5 in over twenty-five years of selling via catalog, online and mail order). While money is not a substitute for one-of-a-kind anime art, all orders are fully insured for loss.

We typically send your art out within 24 hours and you will receive a tracking number.

Currently we ship to the USA, Canada, United Kingdom, and Japan. Please contact us if you live outside of these countries and would like to make a purchase from our gallery.

If you have any questions about shipping, please let us know!
