1. Why are Forever Florist Japan flowers fresher and better value?
Our flowers are fresher and better value than almost any other florist in Japan for a number of reasons. We purchase our flowers direct from the flower farms throughout Asia, cutting out several commission-taking middlemen along the way. We buy in volume, so we are able to get better prices on behalf of our customers. And we haven't got fancy, showy offices to support! Also, our flowers spend only a short period of time in our fridge before going out as we buy every day instead of once a week like the vast majority of florists. This all means that you will get better value flowers that have spent far less time in transit if you buy from Forever Florist Japan than you would almost anywhere else.
2. How do I order flowers on the Forever Florist Japan website?
We hope this is simple. Just browse our products on the website, click the “pick” button on any product that you are interested in.

Then click “Continue” where you will be taken to a page where you can make your order extra special by adding chocolates, cakes, teddies, etc. Then either click the “Continue shopping” link or “Proceed to Checkout” where you enter to where and to whom the order is going, and to make payment.

Yes, you can order by email. Please use our "contact us page" and advise us of the item(s) you would like to order. We try to reply to most emails within 2 hours during business hours, but this is not always possible, especially during periods of high volume, such as Valentine's Day.

We will email you a secure payment link when you are ready to complete your purchase.
