About the effects of the Great East Japan Earthquake
We express our sympathies to all those affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake, and pray for a speedy recovery.
Below we will explain how this tragedy has affected our company.
Fortunately, there was no damage to our company, and we are able to carry out operations mainly as usual. However, due to complications with traffic in the Tokyo region, there have been delays in deliveries of goods to and from the company.
This means it is difficult to give an estimated delivery date of goods. We kindly ask for your understanding.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Due to the effects of rolling blackouts or heavily trafficked phone lines, we might not be able to assist you immediately. Even so, we will strive to serve you as soon as possible.
We apologize for any inconveniences caused by these circumstances, but ask for your understanding.
