Shipping and Order Delivery Information - Items that are immediatly available in the US, either at Chokonen Co. Ltd. or at a supplier’s warehouse, are generally delivered within 7 days. Special order items from overseas take considerably longer. Chokonen Co. Ltd. offers delivery estimates to our customers which take into consideration manufacturer availability and shipping schedule. Many Japanese manufacturers work in a “just in time” inventory system and often take 2 to 6 weeks to produce an item once an order is submitted. All deliverable items are then sent to our Japanese location. Chokonen Co. Ltd. ships a minimum of one full ocean freight container every month from Japan, often times more than one a month. Ocean freight takes an average of 4 weeks. Typically it breaks down to one week in Japan for paperwork and customs, two weeks by boat and one week in US customs/clearance. Due to the wide number of variables between manufacturer and shipping schedules, delivery estimates are simply just that - estimates. We estimate conservatively and we usually deliver faster than our estimates suggest. It is not Chokonen Co. Ltd. policy to guarantee delivery time of any special order item, it is impossible for us to do.
