Concerns about the quality of the used goods? Don't worry, look for Shichimaru logo!

Sometimes people ask us if it is safe to buy second hand products? Please don't worry! It is because in Japan, there is the National Pawnshop Committee which monitors over all the pawnshops in Japan. This committee was established on 21st September 1954, and currently there are over 2000 used goods stores registered.

When you see the logo of this cute "Shichimaru", you know that this used goods store is monitored by the committee. So don't worry, just enjoy your shopping at Sanoya!

Because of the variety of selection and professional appraisal skills, Sanoya is supported and loved by people who live in Otsuka and in Tokyo. They also take their communication with customers very seriously, it can even be said that they have given a new value of "Re-Use" to used goods.
