Can you order ADA stuff from Japan?

Went to their site and I can not find a place where I can order.

ADA-NA and ADGshop do not have items that I want to purchase.

Soil requires a special import permit. Most of their other products are only shipped in large quantities to actual suppliers. Typically only one or two per country here in the West.

You could possibly find a friend in Japan to buy a tank or other dry item to ship to you but your only real option is to order from the two retailers you mentioned when they have the item(s) in stock.

More to the point, what are the items your looking for?

There may be an equivalent product available.

There are several ADA distributors in Europe and Asia. You could always contact them with your question although I'm sure shipping charges will be hefty. Here's a link with the ADA distributors worldwide.

To make sure... the only two suppliers in United States are ADGshop in Texas and AFA in San Fransisco?

Yes. They're listed on ADA's website.

We can special order any items you are looking for - bear in mind that small items are better since they can come in via air freight and have a 1-2 week lead time. Larger items require going on a container and can have a lead time of anywhere between 3-4 months and 6 months all depending on when the order is placed.

Although for the large items, because of recent import issues from Japan, we prefer to wait until 30 days before container orders are placed to finalize any order information.
