How To Buy From Caster House
1. Translate the website
The Caster House webstore is entirely in Japanese, so to make it easier for you to browse, you should translate it. If you have Google Chrome installed, all you have to do is right-click anywhere on the site and you should see the option to ‘Translate’ or ‘Translate to (language)’. Please note that this translation is auto-generated, and is not 100% accurate.
You will notice that the navigation bar did not translate, because unlike most of the site, these are images. Don’t worry, because we’ve helped to translate this for you.

2. Search for items you want to buy
To search for an item, please use the search field on the left side of the page. For the best results, we recommend using keywords in Japanese. If you need tips on finding item names in Japanese, you can read our handy guide here. However, you should be able to find results if you look for words like “Shimano”.
If you scroll further down the page, you will also see a long list of categories you can browse through.
When you click on a category, for example, “Reel”, you will be led to a page with sub-categories, like “Shimano Reel”, “Reel Cover” etc.
If you are unable to find an item, please feel free to reach out to us! By clicking “Can’t Find” on our website navigation bar, our customer support team will be able to help you.
Just make sure you provide as many details as possible so we can best assist you!
3. Find Out More Information About The Product
When browsing through products, you will be able to see important information about the item, such as the price (including tax) and a comprehensive item description that includes gear ratio, spool dimensions, etc. for reels.
If you are interested, click on it to be brought to the product page!
On the product page, you will actually see more or less the same information about the item as you would have previously seen. Take this opportunity to double-check the price (make sure you are looking at the Caster House price, not the retail price) and whether they have it in stock. A cool feature you might want to take advantage of is the “Manufacturer URL”, which actually links you to the item on the manufacturer’s own website.
