Hey everyone! Most of you never heard of Golden Week, but it’s a National Holiday in Japan. This year is a very special year and it’s longer than usual. For Japanese people, it’s the equivalent of “Spring Break”.
You can find more information about this holiday by following this link.
When is Golden Week?
Golden Week takes place from April 27th to May 7th this year.
What happens during Golden Week?
The whole country of Japan kind of “shuts down”. Most factories are closed and people take time to visit their family, do sightseeing or travel.
Why do we talk about Golden Week?
As you may know already, 99% of our parts ship straight from Japan. During Golden Week, our shipping department is no different and all operations will be halted during Golden Week.
Will your order be affected?
Current orders will not be affected. Although, if you place a order after April 12th your order may be delayed by +7 business days (but we will do our best to ship it before). If it is affected, we will inform you right away! Orders placed between 26th of April and May 7th will not be processed until May 8th, since we need to wait for shops to come back from vacation. We will proceed all orders in order of oldest to newest, so if there is limited stock of a product, the orders first received will be prioritized.
Time to enjoy life.
It’s the only time of the year that we can really take time for ourselves and recharge before the summer season!
Sales inquiries between 26th of April and May 7th will be limited because most questions that we do not have answer to cannot be answered during that period.
Cheers, time to drive!
