First of all, thanks for reading this page! TokyoSpark is an independent site and support is needed to help with the operating costs, and also to justify the time I can spend on the project.
For this reason, I’ve decided to add affiliate links to products/services I personally recommend throughout the website. With affiliate links, if you click on them and then end up making a purchase, TokyoSpark will earn a commission, at no extra cost to you because the products/services are the same price as if you bought them without going through an affiliate link (actually, sometimes you get a better deal through my affiliate links).
So purchasing a product through an affiliate link on this site is a great way to help support TokyoSpark.
Alternatively, in the future, there may be sponsored links, which means that a company paid to have their link or banner added to the website.
Both affiliate and sponsored links are marked as such; therefore, you can make an informed decision and know that there might be a bias because of the financial relationship. Rest assured, however, I do my absolute best only to recommend products/services or accept sponsors for products/services that I approve of and feel are of excellent quality and value.
I hope this page helped you understand the nature and reasons for the affiliate and sponsored links found on this website.
All the best to you!
