    You know you have to use a third party to bid right?

    OK but then the link isn't working.
    Did you try contacting the seller? Maybe they don't speak English. Then what will you do?

    You could try a deputy site called www.rinkya.com

    As soundwave.ca mentioned you will probably need to use a deputy service (seeing as most selling won't ship outside Japan.)

    I haven't used these guys myself, so I don't know what they are like - I only use them (at the moment) to search & translate Yahoo JP auction pages.

    Hope that helps :)

    If you're using Firefox, there's an add-on that'll translate the entire page (on a different tab); forgot what it's called now.

    But to reiterate what everyone has said, you will need a deputy bidding service to get some stuff off YJ auctions. There are sellers that will ship internationally (outside of Japan);however, those are more the exception to the rule than the norm. The matter is also complicated by the fact that the method of payment for said auctions is mostly done thru the Japanese banking system.
