Ordering from the VAMPROSE store should be easy – and it is, if you’re living in Japan. However, for those living overseas it can be quite a challenge. SO! This tutorial is designed to help guide you through the process. But first! Here is what you need before you get started:
- A credit card (typically, debit cards don’t work, so you may need to use an actual credit card, i.e. AMEX, MasterCard, etc.)
- An address in Japan. Read here how to get one: How to Obtain a Japanese Address
- A VAMPROSE Store account. Read here how to get a VAMPROSE store account.
Please note that the overseas shipping service, Tenso, is used in this tutorial. To learn more about Tenso, please visit: https://www.tenso.com/en. Also, please view #2 on how to obtain a Japanese address using Tenso.
Step #1: Log into your VAMPROSE account. If you do not have a VAMPROSE account, you MUST create one in order to proceed. Go here to learn how to create a VAMPROSE account with a Japanese address from Tenso.
Step #2: Locate the item(s) you want to buy. If the item is available for purchase, you will see this button on the page:
*It reads “Add to Cart.” If the button is not there, it means the item is not available for purchase, either because it is “SOLD OUT” or it is restricted to “HYDEROOM Members.” NOTE: Items limited to HYDEROOM members-only are designated by “HYDEROOM限定”
And by “※HYDERoom会員限定商品です。” when you click on the product’s image.

Step #4: If you wish to continue shopping, click the “VAMPROSE STORE” heading to go back to the shop. Repeat steps 2-3 until you are done adding items to your shopping cart.

Step #5: After clicking on the blue button, you are routed to this page. Make sure your Tenso address is selected, as shown below. Then click on the blue button to proceed.
Step #6: Enter your credit card information. Remember, debit cards may not be accepted (for security issues), so it is best to use a regular credit card that is not linked to a bank account. Follow the diagram below to enter your information:

Box #2: Select the credit card expiration month.
Box #3: Select the credit card expiration year.
Box #4: Enter your credit card’s security code.

Step #9: Verify to make sure all the information, including product and quantity is correct. If so, click on the blue button in the bottom right-hand corner to complete your order.
Step #10: Once you click the blue button, your order will be processed and you will be re-directed to a confirmation page. You will also receive a confirmation email at the address you used to create your VAMPROSE account. This completes the tutorial.
