I don't know about how Amazon JP ships orders overseas, but my years of buying from Amazon JP in Japan is that partial shipping is the norm, and it has been always like this since the beginning. From my many hundreds of purchase through Amazon JP I would say I got partial shipping more often than whole. If the size of the order is not big, it may be more likely that they ship the order whole but in the shopping option on the website the default is always to permit partial shipping, unless you specifically pick the option that allows shipping only when the full order is available.
