Golden Week 2020 Schedule

Thank you for checking the RHDJapan blog. This post is to provide a heads up regarding the Golden Week Holidays celebrated in Japan and how they will affect the processing and shipping of orders. This year we are also dealing with Corona/Covid-19 issue which has put a nasty speed bump in the way of everyone rolling on with their lives as normal. We would like to thank those who have contacted us expressing their concern during these times. RHDJapan team wishing everyone extra health, strength and safety!!

The official National Holidays in which we cannot ship will be April 29, May 4, 5 and 6. Some companies may be closed from the 29th to the 6th which may push back processing a couple days.

Effective from orders placed after April 17 standard processing time frame of 3~10 working days will change to 3~22 working days.  In other words, orders placed from the 17th will not be put on hold to inform of expected date if we expect the items to be shipped to our warehouse by the 17th of May. For items stated as made to order on the site will be processed as normal with the stated time frame +10 working days until Golden Week finishes. Please understand that there will be a slight delay on orders at this time. For any items that are backordered beyond this time frame customers will be informed via a ticket with exact date information prior to processing the order.

Addition: April 24
OEM Requests cannot be processed between from 04/27 until after 05/06

Typhoon Jebi 21号 update

Hello from the RHDJapan blog. Most of the RHDJapan team had to leave early due to the warnings about Typhoon Jebi. It has now passed and everything is fine with RHDJapan staff and HQ. However this was an extremely strong storm and the Kansai area has received significant damage. We have received reports that Kansai Airport KIX has received significant flooding and a tanker boast has caused damage to the bridge between the airport and the mainland. All DHL/FEDEX and EMS shipments are routed through this airport. Delays may be more excessive than originally thought and we will have some more updates as we receive them.


Osaka Earthquake

Osakaquake epicenter was very close to our Office/warehouse right in Hirakata city. All RHDJapan staff has checked in to be safe. The warehouse is quite a mess with just a little damage. Trains are not running currently and the staff that is close by will be helping to cleanup throughout the day.

Hopefully to be at full speed by tomorrow. Apologies for any delays.


Summer Holiday & Obon Schedule

Hello from the RHDJapan and blog. It’s just about that time of year again. Summer time every year Japanese companies close down for a short break to observe the Obon Holiday.

What is this you may ask? Here is a quote from wikipedia:

Obon or just Bon is a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the departed (deceased) spirits of one's ancestors. This Buddhist custom has evolved into a family reunion holiday during which people return to ancestral family places and visit and clean their ancestors' graves, and when the spirits of ancestors are supposed to revisit the household altars. Also called the Feast of Lanterns, it has been celebrated in Japan for more than 500 years and traditionally includes a dance, known as Bon-Odori.

The majority of manufacturers will be closed from the 9th to the 16th and a couple will be off until the 20th of the month. The companies with a longer holiday will be the OEM manufacturers and their Works companies. For orders that include OEM items placed from the 3rd could see up to a 2 week delay in processing. For the rest of orders we do not expect any more than a week delay on processing orders.  The RHDJapan team will be away from the office from the 9th to the 15th. We apologize for any delays on your urgent items and will be working to process and ship out orders with utmost urgency.

Revoici le temps des vacances! Chaque années toutes les entreprises japonaises ferment leur portes quelques jours pour observer un break à l'occasion du Obon.

Et vous vous demandez peut être ce qu'est le Obon? Voici un extrait de Wikipédia :

O-Bon (お盆, O-Bon?) ou simplement Bon (盆, Bon?, sans le préfixe honorifique) ou Urabon est un festival bouddhiste japonais honorant les esprits des ancêtres. O-Bon existe depuis plus de 500 ans et fut importé de Chine. Au fil des ans, cette fête religieuse s'est transformée en un jour férié consacré à la réunion de famille durant laquelle les gens des grandes villes retournent à leur ville natale et s'occupent des tombes de leurs ancêtres. Un festival de danse, le Bon-Odori ou danse Bon, est traditionnellement donné pendant ces trois jours fériés.

La plus grande partie des fabricants sera fermée du 9 au 16, et d'autres seront en congés jusqu'au 20 de ce mois. Les entreprises qui ont les congés les plus longs sont les fabricants OEM et leur département sport. Pour les commandes qui incluent des articles OEM à partir du 3 Août vont prendre jusqu'à deux semaines de délais. Pour le reste des commandes nous ne comptons pas sur un retard de plus d'une semaine. L'équipe de RHDJapan ne sera pas au bureau du 9 au 15 Août. Nous tenons à nous excuser pour le retard sur vos commandes urgentes et nous feront de notre mieux pour expédier vos commandes avec la plus grande diligence.

Et bien sur, nous remercions aussi tous ceux du monde entier qui ont spontanément offert de nous aider.

A partir de maintenant le Japon va devoir faire face à des coupures de courant, cependant compte tenu de notre situation géographique nous ne devrions pas en être trop affecté.

Les services EMS et DHL fonctionnent selon leur emploi du temps habituels, cependant les services de FedEx sont teporairement suspendus et devraient reprendre dans les prochains jours.

Les entrepôts ainsi que les bureaux de RHDJapan n'ont pas subit de domages, à notre connaissance aucun fabricant ne devrait fermer ses portes.
