|Q. What is "Shaku"?
A. We're using Shakkan-hou (the old Japanese measurement). 1shaku = 30.3cm = 11.9inches.
Q. Please tell me approximate market price.
A. 3,000,000 - 6,000,000JPY (approx.). In the case of 1shaku (11.9inches) tall with Kirikane (gold leaf)
-- If you want to temple or museum size, the price would be more than this.
Q. Please tell me approximate shipping cost.
A. Generally, the box size of temple sized sculpture would be 108cm (42.5 inches) tall and 18kg (39.9 lb).
--So, the shipping cost would be 400,000 JPY. If your item got existing box, the price would be 200,000 JPY.
--This prices are expectations.
--(If 1shaku size would be not so expensive more than that)
