Our cost estimate for one simple entry into the Japanese national phase is US$ 750 (including JPO official fee of US $140).
According to the Japanese patent law, a PCT application can be entered into the Japanese national phase without
a Japanese translation if it is within two month before the 30-Month Deadline. Then, there is the two-month deadline
after the entry of the Japanese national phase for filing a Japanese translation. Please note that the translation filing is due two months from the date of the entry, not from the 30-month deadline.
