Upcoming Holidays in Japan

April 24, 2019

Japan Post reports that 29 April and May 3 to 6 are assigned as national and public holidays in Japan (the so-called "Golden Week"), as explained below:


Since the Emperor Akihito abdicates on 30 April and the new Emperor Naruhito ascends the throne on 1 May, 30 April to 2 May are also designated as a national holiday in 2019 and many official ceremonies for these historical events are planned.  This special arrangement made by the government results in a 10-day national holiday beginning Saturday 27 April to Monday 6 May.


As the OEs and Custom Offices in Japan will not be closed during this period we do not expect any negative impact on our inbound and outbound operations for EMS items and parcels (we deliver EMS items and parcels 7 days a week including holidays in Japan.)


Please note that employees in the head office and local branch offices will not work during this.


Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
