    Cool, I was gonna start this thread a few hours ago but now I don't have to. :)

    I preordered at 4:17pm on the 10th (the online store was down until then, and I couldn't be bothered to sign out of my American store iTunes Match and every other damn thing, on my iPhone) ... Anyway, mine says processing or whatever, but I called my bank tonight and they told me that a hold of 100JPY was made by Apple on the 10th, and then on the 12th a hold of 8860(?) was made, for AppleCare. So I guess it's just a matter of Japan being a smaller country which presents far less of a logistical problem for rollouts like this. I hope to see activity on the order tomorrow, but I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't show anything until Thursday, given the fact that most deliveries can be made next-day in this country.

    Do you have two email from Apple ?
    Confirm and Thank you , right ?

    What time do you complete the order , when do you get the email , what model you has ordered ?

    Mine :
    I ordered on 4:02 and 4:04 , Confirm email came within 2 minute but "Thank you for order" came after that around 40 minute (4:42) ,I order Stainless 42mm milanese loop and sport band .

    Dang. My thank you email didn't actually come until the 12th. Oh well. I was probably too late to get it in the first wave. Funny though - I ordered exactly the same things you did! Black sports band, right?

    I think you can just change the region inside the Apple Store app now.

    Hope yours arrives soon!

    I think maybe since Japan is smaller than America the shipping distances are less in most cases (especially in the Tokyo area) ... we'll probably see these notices on Weds/Thurs.

    Haha I was about to start this thread since I couldn't find right off from the first page list. I guess there aren't that many macrumors users in Japan.
    I ordered at 4:02, got the order confirmed and thank you email on the same day. The delivery is to be made between April 24th~May 8th.
    I'm guessing we are getting it late simply because of the distance. I highly doubt the supplies from China will go to America and come back to Japan (while I was in Korea, the order came straight from China when orderd from Apple online store.) Japan has a pretty good record of shipping (even during weekends) so I think we should be fine.
    I'll still be very impatient about it though haha

    Nothing here, either.

    edit: just spoke with someone at Apple Store support, and she said that she hasn't seen any Japan orders showing 'preparing for shipping' or whatever. So far, no updates in Japan (according to her).

    I got charged but I had to switch the payment method (was finally able to) over to another card that would accept my Japan billing info. Still says "processing goods" though even though the charge went through.

    ----------

    OK, never mind! I just got "出荷準備中" ... shipping soon.

    Hopefully. I've received Amazon Prime shipments that left the distribution center in the middle of the night and arrived later that morning, so I'm hoping that's what happens here. If we don't have tracking numbers by this evening, though, I'm going to be kind of depressed :(

    TacoBell! But it's like J-TacoBell, isn't it? I saw it on TV yesterday and the food didn't look at all like the TacoBell I know and love, from the States. It looked ... weird.

    Anyway, I'm still not seeing anything new on my order. Still "Preparing for Shipment" :(
