Shopping in Japan:

Has anyone used a florist chain here in Japan to get flowers delivered to someone who lives out of town? Have you found someplace where there was staff that could speak English? How about making an order for some flowers to be delivered in another country? (there has been a death in a friend's family in France and I would like to send flowers there too)
I do not want to use the service that is always inserted with my Citibank statement! I'm looking for someone else hopefully.

i think that its better for you to find a florist in france ,
its easy to find them on the net and pay with credit card , we are in canada now and thats the way we sent flowers to israel and to japan, we found local stores and orderd with credit card.
its also much cheaper beacause you dont have to pay the delivery from japan to france.

FTD, in business for almost 100 years, is an excellent company to use for international floral deliveries.
They can be found on the web at www.ftd.com.
They even offer funeral bouquets, wreaths, and sprays for delivery inside France, which would seem to satisfy your individual need.
Just go to www.ftd.com, click "International Deliveries," and then select the recipent's country.

Thanks for your answers regarding France. Does anyone have any info for inside Japan?

For purchase via internet for delivery in France I found two. They both utilize a network of florists as far as I could tell.
VISAFLOR 6 rue Charles Chaumet
Fax : +33.5.56.02.09.62
site is in 6 languages, here's the URL for English: http://www.visaflor.com/uk/index.htm
Delivery charges - Bordeaux: 11 - Rest of France: 15
Payment by bankers card accepted (Règlement par carte bancaire acceptE#41;
I ended up using http://www.telefleurs.fr/
which offered a 10% discount (you have to register). Site is only in French.
I still haven't found a way to send flowers inside Japan, I think it must be my lack of Japanese, or maybe all those thousands of mom&pop flower shops aren't internet connected?

I just used Sagawa Yubin Mother's Day service (or something like that) to post flowers to Tokyo from Hokkaido for the Mothers Day. I paid 3,500 yen for a bunch. Last year I did the same, but the flowers were in a pot, so they are flowering again this year.
For overseas I would use Interflora, flowersonline or something like that. Check them on www.google.com. Some florists would only deliver in the US, others would cover the world.
I don't know about English, as I speak Japanese, sorry!

Is there a toll free number or a web site for Sagawa Yubin's flower service?

Nicolai, a florist (from Denmark) runs 3 flower stores in Tokyo (Minami Aoyama, Akasaka & Yurakucho).
Delivery for all of Japan available and can also arrange for overseas orders (depending on where). Pricing reasonable. Friendly, helpful staff good at accommodating your taste and budget. Some of the staff speak a little English but Nicolai is perfectly fluent - he is at the Aoyama store most of the time.

You can also email me with your flower requirements and I will see what I can do to help. Last year I launched "AGRIBUSINESS for ALL", and the idea is to support Japanese agriculture. I sell agri produce (grassfed and other meat, organic and non-organic vegis, etc.) and can find people who will send flowers to whoever you want in Japan direct from their farms.
Let me know if you are interested (firstname.lastname@example.org).
BTW big thanks to Cornelia for giving me lots of support last year in starting a new business.

Admin: You reminded me. I visited some flower farms in Bozo (Chiba) a couple of years ago, and they will ship directly. The prices are very reasonable. Larger quantities are cheaper of course. (Do I have a name or phone number? Sorry, no.)

I just checked out a site called www.flowerfarm.com (and www.proflowers.com) which are in English and have setups with "over 30 countries" but it seemed very expensive.

Missing your family in India? Then just send some fresh flowers to them. you dont know how to? Then believe me this is a great way to do so. Log on to http://www.sringaronline.com and send. I tried it and it reached on the same day! Great!
