Shipping & Returns

At Yamamotoyama, our goal is to deliver your purchase in the quickest and most economical way possible. Standard delivery is shipped via UPS or the U.S. Postal Service. Because the post office now delivers seven days a week we will use Priority mail whenever possible. Those packages will be delivered in 1-3 days to addresses across the United States. Larger packages will be shipped using UPS and can take between 3-8 days for delivery. Rush delivery orders ship via UPS or Priority mail. For more specific information on your individual package, please check your shipping confirmation email.
