In Japan, use of the term “organic” is regulated by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF). Any agricultural product, processed agricultural product that claims to be “organic” must comply with the Japan Agricultural Standard (JAS) organic regulations.

Amazon Japan restricts to list incompliant “organic” products on our website. To confirm that an item is compliant, we validate the images of the item on our website whether the Organic JAS Logo is printed on the packaging material or attached. Please be sure to upload at least one clear image of the packaging with the Organic JAS Logo to the item’s page (Main-image and Sub-image are both acceptable). We may suppress your offers in case we cannot confirm a valid image with Organic JAS Logo on our webpage. For queries on this program, please contact us from the address below.

Amazon provides these resources for informational purposes only. We encourage you to consult with legal counsel if you have questions about the laws and regulations concerning your products.
Maximum number of images shown on a page is 6. If multiple Sellers uploaded images and the number exceeded 6, there would be images that don’t show up on the page. To allow Amazon to correctly validate compliance in those cases, Amazon will provide another pass to send images via email.
You may receive multiple times of similar requests. The scope of this program is newly listed and recently modified items. Even if your item has been approved in the past, you may receive another same request when the information of the item is modified (e.g. Title, Product description, Product information etc.).

However if you are listing multiple of quite similar ASINs and received a message mentioning only a part of them, it would be appreciated if you reply to the message with that information.
We truly apologize for the wrong message. Please reply to the message by mentioning that.
