With vaping laws and regulations changing all the time it's important to stay up to date especially if you're travelling. If you're travelling to Japan, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. Let's start with the main question everyone seems to have and that's whether vaping is legal in Japan or not.
Vaping is not illegal in Japan, however there's a catch. Since 2010 the sale of E-cigarettes containing nicotine has been banned. E-liquids and e-juices that do not contain nicotine are sold to adults and minors instead since there's no law prohibiting the sale of non-nicotine devices in Japan.
Liquid nicotine, like Freebase, BoldSalts and NicSalts are considered pharmaceutical substances, therefore if you want to buy e-juice locally in Japan, you will have to get it from a pharmacist. However, this doesn't entirely mean that this is the only way to get nicotine e-juice when in Japan. Stated by the Ministry of Health, in Japan, you are allowed to import a 1 month personal supply of e-juice which equates to 120ml. This applies if you are importing it from out of country and if you're also coming into Japan and is irregardless of the nicotine strength.
Now you might be wondering how long it takes to ship e-juice to Japan. With VanGo Vapes, shipping time to Japan is anywhere from 3-5 business days to reach the Flavorist in Japan.
