What is Fril (Rakuma)?
With over 10 million app downloads, Rakuma (formerly Fril) is one of Japan's top peer-to-peer marketplaces! From brand-new releases to sought-after finds, it's a treasure trove of fabulous fashion and more – the perfect place to search for your personal holy grail!
The short story. Fril was created in 2012 and was the first flea-market platform in Japan. It was followed one year later by Mercari. The success of these two platforms engendered a huge wave of new start-ups in Japan who tried to create similar platforms.
Rakuten, which is the biggest marketplace in Japan, didn't like it. Their customers were using more and more all these new C2C platforms. So in order to counter that, Rakuten decided to buy Fril and rename it Rakuma. So, since 2016, Rakuten is managing the second biggest flea-market platform in Japan.
Mercari may be the biggest name in the Japanese smartphone marketplace world, but Rakuma is vying for that crown. Whether you’re interested in Japanese streetwear, kawaii Harajuku fashion or luxury brands, you can find tons of great deals within the thousands of listings on the site.
Does Rakuma ship internationally?
Unfortunately, Rakuma app is limited to those who have a domestic Japanese address, but that doesn't mean that your location should limit your shopping. So if you want to buy products listed on there, you will need to use a proxy service. When you use Remambo proxy service, you'll get help with Rakuma's entire buying process and so you can score some great deals on Rakuma! Ordering items from Rakuma is really simple with REMAMBO.
