    ...And he's asking if I want something from there. I'm not sure what I should ask for, though. It has to be small and inexpensive. Any suggestions?

    If you've picked up a Japanese Pepsi Convoy, see if they can bring over a real, Japanese 500 ml Pepsi bottle(or Pepsi Twist, as the graphics depict) for his trailer... That's what I've got a friend's wife doing for me...

    Uhmm.... you could always ask for something common, like window cleaner. A friend of mine found a Japanese aerosol cleaner in the glovebox of a 240 SX firewall setup he had shipped over. It was pretty neat, so he decided to keep it and display it with his right-hand-drive creation at shows.

    Ebi Filet-O from McDonalds - The greatest fast-food sandwich I've ever tasted. Shrimp!
    Kit-Kats - Tons of awesome flavors, depending on which city he's in.
    Manneken Waffles - Sweet waffle pastries (Only in Osaka, as far as I know)

    Besides food items, recommending something inexpensive-but-cool is a challenge. Other than gashapons, request some decorated chopsticks or some .2mm micro-point pens.

    How about a sofubi figure? Insanely wide variety of characters you could choose from, hell, there's even vinyl Spider-Man 3 figures (red AND black, no less). Kaiju would be the most obvious choice, at least for me. Godzilla, Gamera, Ultraman kaiju and seijin like my friend Baltan altogether would number between 60 to 90 different toys of your choosing.

    Have him bring back a few bentos, that way you can take your lunch to work in style. A few phonebook-sized manga magazines would always make some interesting "reading" along with being a good conversation piece.
