    Indeed, and that was earlier this week. Something must be happening in Tokyo. :)

    I may never use SAL again. The extra money for EMS is worth it. Hmm. 2 days, or 30? Easy choice.

    Ya I've ordered stuff from Japan EMS like this and it is pretty damn fast. Definitely faster from Tokyo to Canada then from the USA to Canada even, Express from the US takes almost a week on average.

    To bad my BT Black Convoy didn't fare as well though, this go around he took almost a week :(

    If Kennedy AMC is JFK Airport, I don't think it's even possible to get there from Tokyo in 11 hours.

    It may be that the times are local, meaning you'd need to subtract 14 or 15 hours from the Japan times to get Florida time, so it's more like about 60 hours.

    Still damned fast, though! :thumb

    Well, yeah, the Tokyo times are local, so they are 13 hours behind or so. I calculated that it took about 26 or so hours for that flight. When I flew North Carolina to Okinawa, it took about 22 hours.

    EMS is the best. I get stuff from Japan in 2 to 3 days.
