What is Rakuma?
Rakuma, formerly known as Fril, is a Japanese C2C marketplace owned by Rakuten that is primarily accessed through a mobile application. Similar to its competitors, Mercari and, Rakuma is another marketplace that was quick to jump on the mobile shopping trend and now boasts over 10 million downloads.
Why use a proxy buying service to shop on Rakuma?
Rakuma is a dynamic marketplace featuring a wide selection of second-hand merchandise sold by thousands of individuals. It’s important to note that most sellers, on the Rakuma app, aren’t willing to ship their products abroad. Additionally, you should know that if you’re outside of Japan, you likely won’t be able to download or register the app at all. One of the only ways to gain access to the goods on the Rakuma app, from abroad, is through a proxy buying service like Japan Rabbit. Japan Rabbit is your ticket to affordable consumer-to-consumer deals. Instead of missing out on one-of-a-kind Japanese products, we make it easy to place international orders through our simple, four-step, process. If you are interested in learning how to access the Rakuma app abroad and place your first order, keep reading!
