Thanko Announces Opening of Overseas Internet Shopping Site “raremonoshop”

TOKYO, July 3 /Kyodo JBN/ — Thanko, Inc. is pleased to announce that it opened an overseas shopping website, “raremonoshop” (, on July 2.

“raremonoshop” is an e-commerce website specializing in digital goods. The main concept is to provide products that not only have a good design but are also unique and useful in function.

Till now, we were operating within the domestic market due to distribution-related issues. But after working out the details of an overseas payment system based on “PayPal” and product delivery using EMS and international mail,  we have now opened the new service for the global market.

We’ll keep expanding our lineup of useful and unique products like the necktie with a cooling fan or the mini desk that lets you use laptops, tablets, etc. while lying on your back. So watch out for our new products.

On the occasion of the opening of “raremonoshop”, we have introduced a special campaign “10% OFF SPECIAL OFFER”. Between July 2 and July 31, you will get 10% off on all our products for all purchases worth 50 U.S. dollars or more.

A new original product for sale!
Together with the opening of “raremonoshop”, we are launching a new, unique and revolutionary product fit for the new e-commerce website — “a music player that converts your records and cassettes to MP3s on a micro SD with no need for a computer”.

The main topic for this product is the “Auto individual tracking function”.
When you digitize a cassette tape or an analog record using the existing products, several songs get converted into a single MP3 file, and to access each song you have to use the fast-forward and pause buttons again and again. But, with the “Auto individual tracking function” in this new product, each song will be saved as a separate MP3 file automatically, so you can access them easily.

Please have a look at the product page for details.
