Amazon Japan announced their new premium delivery option “Toujitsu Oisogi Bin”, which is not offered by US Amazon, the same day delivery.
Of course, some restrictions are applied. To get the product in the same day, you need to see that the shipment option is selectable on the product page.
Firstly, not all products are possible for this shipment option, they say.
Secondly, ordering time seems be at the early part of the day. It may depend on products. When I order some popular books just after midnight, it is said to be ordered within about 12 hours for today’s delivery.
Then, your home should be located in Kanto Area (Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Gunma, Tochigi and Ibaraki – red area on the map above) or Kansai Area (Osaka, Kyoto, Hyogo, Nara, Wakayama and Shiga – blue area).
The number of those prefectures is 13 our of all 47, however, half of population are living in those two area.
The second biggest area Kansai, is covered by their newly opened distribution centre “Amazon Sakai FC”.
The same day delivery option costs 500 yen (5.5 USD).
