E-mail address, phone number, opening hours and the location of Tokyo Flute Space.
Thanks to a great number of clients’ repeated visits, recommendations and their trust given, the booking situation has become increasingly tight at Tokyo Flute Space.
On average, it currently takes about 3-5 months from the initial enquiry to the actual date of appointment for bringing the instrument in. It particularly seems to get longer in the second half of the year (roughly from July through December), which could extend up to around 6 months, presumably due to the tendency to be booked often by clients visiting from distant locations and international artists on tour to Japan.
Though it will always be attempted to find the earliest possible date for each appointment, also out of the nature of a repair shop that receives instruments being in daily use, Tokyo Flute Space apologises for any inconvenience caused and would like to ask for your generous understanding, as well as for an early enquiry if it is of your interest.
After making your enquiry, please wait for the staff to reply in the incoming order. In case you do not receive the reply as expected, would you please kindly check your spam mail folder for accidental filtering, as well as verifying the filter setting itself.
For those who are visiting Tokyo Flute Space on a regular basis, it seems most common that their instruments remain playable to an acceptable standard for 6-12 months under professional circumstances, and 12-18 months for recreational players. If your enquiry comes in early enough this routine can still be kept mostly in its current style, except accidents etc. More and more clients appear to enquire about the next approximate opportunity when they visit the workshop, which might be an idea for others as well.
[UPDATE 12 November 2023]
The earliest availability will approximately be in the end of May 2024. (subject to change)

Regrettably, Tokyo Flute Space is often unable to take your phone call while the staff is serving another client, at specific kinds of work, or out of the workshop.
The procedure for those who make the enquiry for the first time would require e-mail correspondence anyway, as we need to confirm exact appointment in written form and let you know of the direction etc. For repeating clients, your record of past / recent repairs will be examined before suggesting any dates, so that they will become as appropriate as one can predict. In the hopes of achieving flawless booking procedure, it would be highly appreciated if you could kindly make your enquiry by e-mail or using enquiry form (in Japanese only, click HERE if you prefer filling it out) as much as you can.
Due to increasing demand, the opportunity for the staff is limited to take phone calls but please do try to reach if you are a new client who is expecting, but not receiving, reply from Tokyo Flute Space after your initial enquiry.
