    Kodokan Internet Shop is No More?

    Post by Y-Chromosome on Tue Jan 23, 2018 9:10 am

    Was just wondering what some kata DVDs would set me back in ¥.
    I clicked on the old "Kodokan Internet Shop" only to be brought to a page saying it closed?

    http://www.hint.jp/kshop/en/

    Does anybody know what's up?
    Are they just not selling stuff anymore or will it still be available through another distributor?
    If so who? where?

    Please don't tell me I have to schlep my a$$ to Tokyo just to get some DVDs.

    Yes... I know most of it is on YouTube, that's NOT my question.

    I was at the Kodokan last week.  The small kiosk in the lobby is still there carrying all the usual stock.  The “Kodokan Internet Shop” was a separate, and unrelated, commercial venture.

    The Kodokan DVDs are available from other sources, as are the Kusakura judogi and obi.

    Thanks for the reply.

    DVDs not as easy to find as you might think.

    Amazon sold out out of Kime no.
    Fighting Films has Kime no but is sold out of a lot of the others.
    Hatashita doesn't even offer them.

    It's starting to look like the supply is drying up.

    If you've got a good line on who's still selling the DVDs it would be appreciated.

    The old 'Kodokan Internet Shop' now displays:
    講道館インターネットショップは2017年10月末日をもちまして閉店いたしました。
    ご注文頂いております帯につきましては、出来上がり次第順次発送させていただきます。
    尚、今後のDVD及び書籍のお問い合わせにつきましては、講道館総務部(03−3811−7155)にお願いいたします。
    長い間ご愛顧賜りましてありがとうございました。

    (株)ヒューマン・インタフェイス

    My quick translation:
    Closed Oct 2017
    For DVDs and written materials, please contact the Kodokan Admin Department directly 講道館総務部(03−3811−7155)

    Thanks,

    Hopefully they'll get a new arrangement.

    Maybe I'll try contacting the Admin Dept "indirectly" via the International Department.

    I'd be curious if you called Admin if you can find someone that speaks English.

    Unlikely...

    That's why I intended to go through the International Dept.
