It is now Obon period in Japan which is the season of summer vacations. (The week around August 15th)
It may take some time for us to respond to your inquiries.
Sorry for the inconvenience, and we appreciate your understanding.
Japanese holidays for July 2021 have been changed due to the Olympics.
Thursday, July 22, 2021 and Friday, July 23, 2021 are national holidays.
In Japan, you can also submit your divorce papers by postal mail to the municipal office (city hall).
You can download the divorce form (Rikon-Todoke) from some municipal offices via the Internet. Generally, the form can be used at any Japanese municipal office.
However, if there are any mistakes, you will have to go to the municipal office to make corrections, so it is strongly advised to call the municipal office (Koseki-gakari) well in advance and make sure that your divorce form is filled out correctly.
Also, if you are a foreigner, be sure to check whether your home government will allow you to get a divorce by just mutual consent, without going to court.
As of April 1, 2021, the total amount including consumption tax (Shohi-Zei, 消費税) must be indicated in the price labeling for consumers.
In other words, the price tag could be indicated like “10,000 yen plus consumption tax” until March 2021, but from April 2021, the price will have to be indicated like “11,000 yen”.
This regulation is applied to all of the price indications such as price tags, flyers, catalogues and also websites.
We do not handle tax issues. This information is provided just for your reference. If you have inquiries about tax issues, please ask a tax accountant (Zeirishi) for details.
If you are involved in a traffic accident in Japan, be sure to call the police (dial 110). By contacting the police, you will be able to have a traffic accident certificate issued at a later date.
