JEF will continue to adopt flexible time working and remote work partly in our weekly working time even after June 1, 2020,
which is our new working style to prevent COVID-19 from spreading out over the country.

Thus,the hours on a week day when we can respond to your inquiry on the phone must be 10:00-17:00.

Please understand that we do our best efforts to meet your request in those hours.
