Japan’s state of emergency, intended to stop the spread of COVID-19, has now been lifted nationwide. We have determined that even after June 1, a certain percentage of employees working at our headquarters will continue to work from home for the time being.
For commuting employees, we also intend to continue staggered working hours and avoiding peak times when public transport systems are crowded.

While we apologize for any inconvenience caused to our customers and stakeholders, we appreciate your continued understanding and support.

Customer Inquiries & Phone Support
We have been handling phone inquiries since June 1 and will continue according to the schedule below for the time being.
Phone support hours: 10:00 – 12:00 / 13:00 – 15:00 (closed weekends, Japanese holidays, and company holidays)
We also have an online form for inquiries outside of phone support hours.
