    I'd like a pair of worn schoolgirl undies, please. [​IMG]

    H/t to GS, who made that joke in the last Japan proxy thread. The classics never get old...

    Seriously, are Visvim crazy expensive over there too? What about W)Taps Vans? I might grab a pair if they're not too outrageous b/c I can be sure of sizing...

    about 40000yen or so. shoes are going to cost a lot to send, so expect another 5000yen or so just with the shipping costs. im putting a hlat to the service for the next two months, so please contact other members/proxy serivces if you are looking to get something from japan.

    Hey, I was just hoping to get some help about rakuten.jp . Ive tried to register, but I cant figure out the right zip code and the drop-down list (I cant translate it). I Live in Philadelphia, do they ship to the US?
    Thanks

    rakuten is like a internet mall of small boutiques. whether they ship abroad will depend on the individual store's policy. here is a webpage from one of the stores showing how to register into rakuten.

    http://www.rakuten.ne.jp/gold/super-...en/get-id.html

    and if you are ever up to paying a little extra for getting anything, im always at your service sir.

    do you use google checkout, by any chance?

    if so, what would the fees be in that case?

    i havent had much chance to understand the service yet, but i will definitely look into it if they can also handle international transaction(sending/receiving across borders, making deposits into japanese banks...etc). but for now it will be either paypal or moneybookers.

    Got my nandos from parachutes but I've been so busy with work haven't even had a chance to open the box.

    The whole process was smoother than I expected and he graciously answered my questions. He proved to be very helpful and courteous while responding in a timely manner when I sent him emails. It also helped of course that he was thorough as well.

    I tried to pick up some things from 2000db but didn't have much luck and seemed like he couldn't be bothered with my requests while everyone was happily postem up their pickups.

    Now after dealing with my man parachutes (Hajime), he's the only person I would consider buying anything from in japan. Did I mention it got to Socal in 3 days? I really can't say enough good things about this dude so this will have to do for now.

    I got the sora nandoxnandos, I think they're on the US site now.

    They have the nxn in a painter's pant type of cut and a womens version as well. Sorahiko is the only one for now and it fits slightly slimmer (but not slim) than suminando soras.
