Some of us are in Japan too Before I was in Japan I did the proxy thing and it's definitely the way to go, particularly if you go used. It's a bit more of a hassle especially if you aren't sure of sizing, but that's the risk you run for cheaper stuff. If you've got a shop nearby that carries them it's still the best way to check it out and that's the premium you pay. For everyone else I guess the internet is the way to go. And no, I am not a proxy.
