Japanese Mahjong Game Set

One of the most popular items in the range of mahjong sets sold on Japanese-Mahjong.com is the "Japanese Mahjong Game Set", a combination set consisting of Japanese mahjong tiles and a mahjong playing mat.
The mahjong game set comes complete with its own nylon carrying bag with five pockets along the outside for the mahjong tiles, scoring sticks, wind marker and dice.

The mahjong mat is the popular "JUNK" mat, which has a raised plastic frame with spaces for score sticks to be kept during the game. The frame can be dismantled and the mat rolled up and stored in the nylon bag.

The mat itself is made of SBR neoprene material (similar to the material used for wetsuits) and is water resistant and odourless.

The mahjong tiles included in the game set are classic Japanese riichi mahjong tiles. They are made by the Japanese chemical company, Taiyo Chemicals.

Included in the Japanese Mahjong Game Set are four "red fives" and four season tiles. The backs of the tiles are classic "bamboo" colour. The tiles are finished to Japanese production standards. The faces of the tiles are well defined, with clear characters and no "running". The tiles are also odourless.

Tiles: 25.5 x 18.5 x 16mm

Mat: 690 x 690 x 4mm

Bag: 759 x 200mm

The set is shipped worldwide from Japan by Express Mail Service and is available for purchase at Japanese-Mahjong.com.

Hello, I'm interested in this combination and I was going to order it. But I also wanted to get a set of Yakitori markers and when I added those to the PayPal shopping basket the price for shipping went up by an additional $15. Since the shipping for the mat and tiles is already $70 I thought this was a bit steep.

I sent a message to you via your contact form some days ago, but have so far not received a reply. It would perhaps be a good idea to list an email address on your site as an alternate way to get in touch...

Hi Mattias,

Thank you for your feedback. I agree an extra $15 is too much. It is difficult for me to set up a Paypal shipping calculation system that is accurate in every case, especially with orders of two or more different items.

What I can do in such a case is to offer a partial shipping refund and send it to you via Paypal.

Best wishes,

So, I bought the set and I'm really happy with it. I wrote an in-depth review of it here.
