How To Buy Nepali Books From Japan?
By Riya Pant
Books are published and released everyday from incredible writers all around the world. But there is nothing like the wit and sophistication of Nepali literature.
Back home, we agree on this and read books on the daily. But when you are living abroad, it is tedious to find a book shop that sells Nepali books. Even if you manage to find one, there just aren’t that many to buy and read.
Nepali literature and authors still haven’t got the exposure in the international market that they deserve. And you are probably aware of this in Japan too.
At Books Mandala, we have thousands and thousands of Nepali books to choose from and we deliver them internationally; including straight to your doorstep in Japan.
About Books Mandala:
Books Mandala is one of the biggest online book stores in Nepal. We have an ever-growing collection of over 35,000 books to choose from that we add and restock to everyday.
We offer the most popular and sensational books to rare and lesser-known books that you wouldn’t be able to find in Japan at the best price.
We operate from Nepal and have two large stores with amazing catalogs in Kathmandu and Pokhara. But it is just as easy to purchase books from abroad. We take and ship orders and accept payments internationally.

Read this comprehensive guide for details on placing an order, our payment offers and shipping policies.
Visit our website:
Visit our official website to browse through our collection by categories or search for the books or authors you’re looking for manually.
We also have a separate category for used books that are available for much cheaper. All of the used books cost Rs. 250 only.
Add books to cart
Add the books you were looking for to your cart. The ‘add to cart’ option should be right under the book listings. You can browse and shop further as much as you’d like.
If, however, an item is listed ‘out of stock’, you can choose to get a restock alert, so you don’t miss it when we get our hands on them.
After you’re done shopping, visit your cart and check all your items. At the right side of the page, there is an option to have the order gift wrapped. You might want to check the option if you want to buy the books as gifts for someone.
Once you’re done, click ‘Checkout’ at the end of the page.
When you click ‘Checkout’ you will be redirected to our checkout page.
Here you will have to provide some personal information (your name and contact information) and shipping details (address, state, street number, house number, etc.).
The information you provide will only be used to process and ship your order and you’ll be added to our mailing list. For more, read our privacy policies.
If you were lucky enough to grab a coupon code when it's still valid, fill it in the empty field for ‘Coupon Code’ in the right section of the checkout. Here, you can also find your order summary and total cost of the purchase.
The shipping charges will be auto calculated based on your location and the weight of your order.
Let’s move on to the payment process.
For international purchases, we accept payment through Stripe. Now you don’t need to create a digital wallet based in Nepal to purchase things from Nepal internationally.
You can pay straight from your credit card through Stripe; very easy and secure.
At the bottom of the checkout page, you’ll find different payment options. Choose the option for payment through Stripe. Log in with your credentials and transfer the required amount, and then we’re done.
A message will then appear on your screen confirming your order and payment.
You will also receive an email from us with your order summary, shipping details and transaction. You can track the process of your order yourself once it is on its way.
Our Shipping Policies:
Naturally, it takes longer to ship and process international orders as compared to domestic orders. The estimated delivery period is anywhere from 5-10 business days.
We ship our orders through our delivery partner, Aramex and all the shipping charges and additional international cost will be calculated automatically at the checkout page.
The shipping charges depend upon your location and also the weight of your order.
You can personally track the progress of your order with the link we send you in your email.

Do You Want To Buy Books As Presents?
Books make incredible presents and we make it possible for you to give someone a book even when you’re living far away.
When buying books as presents, make sure to provide the receiver’s contact and address information. You can add your own email to track the shipping progress.
If you want to have the order wrapped neatly, you can click the option to get it wrapped for a small extra price.
Then, complete the payment normally through Stripe. If you wish to include any special message, we make this happen too. You can find an empty field for ‘order/delivery notes’ on the checkout page. Write the message there and we’ll send it to the receiver on your behalf.
Combo Deals and Discount codes:
From the best of some authors to the most loved books in a specific genre, we offer some book bundles with discounts as deals on special occasions. These bundle deals will cost you less than if you have these books individually. So, browse the deals section to see if anything piques your interest.
We also offer coupon codes on special occasions or for some most awaited books every once in a while. Any announcements about these discount codes are made on our social media and our discord community. So, be sure to follow our community on social media so you don’t miss any discount codes or grand deals.
Reading books is a therapeutic experience and one of the best habits you can form. We aim to encourage more people to adapt to reading and also make it easier for all our fellow non-resident Nepalis to buy Nepali books from abroad. Our services help provide a little more exposure and boost to our literature in the international marketplace.
We keep on stocking and restocking new books everyday. We believe there are books for everyone and everything up our sleeves. Become a part of our community and witness this continuous growth yourself.
