Tanaka

Hi,
Just to clarify, Tanaka (81 items) is sold by Amazon.com the seller which means they stock the product in their regional warehouses and customer service is through them.

Tanaka has always been sold by other "merchants" as well, but we have no control over them. They are basically renting space on Amazon.
