Route Package Protection

Rikumo now offers the option to protect your order with Route, a low-cost insurance provider that covers lost, stolen or damaged packages. Route also allows you to easily track your order through their free app.

The cost of Route protection is a flat $1.55 fee on all orders of less than $100, or 2.6% of the total order value for orders over that threshold. Simply click the switch in the Route widget on the right side of the Checkout page to add protection for your package:

Orders are not protected by default, so you will not be charged this fee unless you specifically choose to add Route protection to your order. Please note that package protection fees are not eligible for a refund in the event that an order is returned.

In the event that you need to submit a claim, just click the link in your order confirmation email or use the Route app. All issues must be reported within 60 days of the order date and according to the following deadlines:

  • Damaged items: Within 15 days of when the package was marked Delivered
  • Package lost (Domestic): Between 7 and 30 days from the last tracking update
  • Package lost (International): Between 20 and 30 days from the last tracking update
  • Package stolen: Between 5 and 15 days from when the package was marked Delivered

Because shipping is sometimes unavoidably delayed, claims for lost or stolen items will not be reviewed before their respective time windows. However, when a claim is submitted within the appropriate time frame, it is typically addressed within 24 hours, and often much sooner. Additional information can be found on the Route website here.

For instances in which the contents of your package are incorrect (i.e. you received the wrong color, size, or quantity of items), please contact us directly via email at or by phone at (215) 609-4972 and we will promptly resolve the issue.

Returns & Exchanges

Your satisfaction is our number one priority, however, we understand that sometimes our products may not meet your expectations.

Product Availability

Because a great many of our products are handcrafted and shipped from Japan, their availability and quantity are often limited.

If you are interested in an item that is on backorder or sold out on, we encourage you to sign up for a Back in Stock notification via that specific product page or to reach out to us via phone or email. 

Gift Wrapping

If you are shopping with us in person and would like an item wrapped, a member of our staff will be happy to help. Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to provide gift wrapping for online orders; however, you can choose to add a personal note to your gift in your shopping cart.
