Anyone in Japan?
« on: August 17, 2011, 01:28:16 PM »
I want to buy a yoyo from a Japanese online store,
but they would only send it within Japan.

Can anyone in Japan buy it for me and ship it to me?

No I buy from other stores in japan all the time but they are very overpriced like rewind
I use Gleipner for 1a and 3a.

It's the exchange rate that's killing all the prices. Japanese Yen has gone way up in value in the past few years. But then when you consider that shipping for most high end yoyos is free and arrives to the US in the same amount of time as priority mail within the US, it's really not so bad.

NOTE:

 If yoyonation had the yoyo I want, I would've already bought it from you guys.

At one of the yoyo shops in tokyo (spingear) They sell a phenom yoyo for 12,800 yen Which, with the current yen rate, is about 171$. Really bad yen rate now.




I live in japan!

Well, I want to buy couple of stuff from Japan every so often,
but most places only ship whithin Japan.

One of the stuff I'm looking to buy is the one in the middle.

I don't think so, though google translate doesn't really do that great of a job translating the entire checkout page so I can't say absolutely for sure.
