It still hasnt been restricted ? I remember the same requests being made to Japan for a number of years. Must be another example of Japanese " tradition and culture" that gaikoku doesnt understand then. Another talking point for next time when the inevitable " we Japanese love and have a special relationship with nature" topic comes up.

But, if trade in ivory is banned, doesn’t that mean Yahoo is breaking the law by allowing it to be sold on the website?

@Do the hustle It's banned only in certain countries, it can still be sold legally in Japan and other countries. I would never buy anything made from ivory. To kill elephants to near extinction for their tusks is not right.

I wonder if the ban includes antiques (not fakes) that has some documentation of proof?
