Mrs TOJ and I are ready to announce a Japanese proxy service to the members of styleforum. As we are mutually interested in cooking, clothing, cars, design objects, and Japanese culture in general, it is our pleasure to be able to assist you in acquiring rare, hard to get items from Japan.
We are located in Tokyo, and have physical access to all of the stores in the Tokyo/Kanagawa/Saitama area, and can do Yahoo! Japan auctions, Mbok auctions, online shops, and more. Just ask us.
The service will be as standard - items will be paid for, add proxy fee as a percentage of item cost, add shipping (combined shipping available), add paypal fee if paying via paypal. We will accept paypal and bank wire - we will charge no fee if paying via wire. We ship via postal EMS (3-4 day worldwide delivery) unless the item can't be sent as such.
basic proxy fee, for auctions, online store buys, physical store buys: 10%. In cases where clothing items or other items can possibly be bought at a discount off tag price through our private membership discounts (department stores like Isetan offer 5% off) - we will pass the savings along to you and reduce the 10% fee accordingly - Isetan items will be 5%, and so on.
I will update this original post with suggestions and links over time. I plan to also scour the stores and markets for an assortment of goods that are one of a kind or of singular quantity, and bring them online.

Feel free to ask questions about items, availability, item choices in this thread.
