It might depend on where you are, but when I applied, we got it within two weeks.

When you get your COE (Certificate of Eligibility) its a matter of going to the Embassy/Consulate of Japan, and that usually takes 2-4 days to turnaround. Mine took 2 days with the COE.

The Embassy of Japan website of your home country usually has a number or lists the time it takes. In the US its a 4 day turnaround (minimum) but it only took 2 days (again with the COE), with a COE the Embassy doesn't need to inquire or look at additional documents. Someone without a COE applying for a Visa takes much longer.
