From April 28th until May 7th there is a holiday period in Japan known as Golden Week. Most auctions and shipping companies will be closed during this period and Get Cars Japan will be staffed by a skeleton crew so that we’ll be able to respond to urgent matters.
This year’s Golden Week is especially long because of the Coronation of the new Emperor. Another effect this will have on auctions is the Japanese year structure. Since the Japanese use the number of years the Emperor has been in his position to count years, the Heisei Era you may have become used to (current year is 31 = 2019) will end and the count will go back to zero from May.
The new era will be called Reiwa. Years will be designated with R (just as Heisei years were H1 to H 31).
Please note that any auction listings during the 1st week of May will not be correct and will most likely appear the following week.
Most auctions will be back to full operation from May 8th.
We will do our best to keep up our fanatical customer support during the holiday period and your understanding if there are delays in our response time will be most appreciated.
