    ?Rakuten International Shipping Services? Get Great Selection & Great Savings from Japan to you! Cheap and Quick Delivery!
    ?Rakuten International Shipping Services?Rakuten Proxy Shopping Services

    Normally the fee is 980yen per item, but until the 5th of December, it's free, so you only have to pay for the merchandise, actual cost of shipping (domestic and international) + paypal fee.

    ?????? Rakuten International Shipping Services

    It's a bit hard to navigate though. Just a heads up :) 

    edit; the code "holiday" needs to be entered in your order form.

    No, you're reading it right. According to HLJ, it retails for 4500, and in-Japan prices are generally cheaper than that.

    This, by the way, sounds awesome. I'm sure I can find some use for it.

    In japan shop it only 3400 yen for them

    However you can buy it from HWjapan for 3600 yen.. save a bit on shipping fee

    Edit: If your credit card has been issued outside of Japan, only American Express, JCB and Diners are acceptable
    What a load of crap! So Visa and Mastercard are not accepted.

    I guess. This is possibly Japan's biggest online shopping mall and unless you know what you are after (and some Japanese) it's very hard to navigate.

    Cdn and Chosen (or anyone), if you guys need help looking for anything in particular, let me know.
    I might be picking up some confectioneries :)
