Rinkya is an English language buying service for on-line Japan auctions, stores, manufacturers and specialty websites. Historically, the Japanese have had an isolationist policy regarding retail trade with other countries via mail order and this attitude has remained prevalent on the internet. Aside from the language barrier, it is still very rare today that Japanese sellers willingly ship goods outside of Japan. Rinkya provides worldwide buyers the ability to bid and buy on auction sites, from stores and specialty web sites, even special order goods usually unavailable outside of Japan without any knowledge of the Japanese language or business etiquette . The Japanese sellers, on the other hand, deal with someone who is fluent in Japanese, knowledgeable about Japanese business customs, and never ship out of Japan. Sellers simply ship to Rinkya's Japanese warehouses, and Rinkya's Staff ships the goods to the buyer anywhere in the world.
