Do we need to renew membership at Costco Japan?

Asked by Olga Kaneda · 4 years ago

Some people say we have to pay 4000 yen every year just as mentioned on their website.

But some people say we just have to pay once. We still didn't have to renew the membership and it'd already been a year.

Which is correct? Thanks!

Membership at Costco is good only for a year. As you near the end of your membership year, you will be asked at the register (when you shop) whether you'd like to pay the membership fee for the following year.

Yes. You need to pay an annual membership fee. I had mine in 2014 and I did not pay for 2015, since we never had the chance to shop there last year. As for this year, I think we will be renewing our membership when we go shop there. 

I don't think you are really obliged to pay yearly, though. Only when you need or want to.
