IMHO that's cheaper to go through Amazon ourselves and then send the package directly a forwarding service
69,800 yen + 2,400 yen for international shipping to North America + 150 yen handling fee = 72,350 yen (700 bucks or so) plus currency conversion fees charged by the bank and Visa / MasterCard etc.
Personally I don't think I would consider Price Japan whenever something could be ordered via Amazon on my own. Of course Price Japan should be fantastic when I actually can't find that listed on Amazon to begin with.
My credit card company doesn't even charge any currency conversion fees at all and I'm only paying Visa 1% for the conversion. That's why it's well worth the time to do our homework before we get a credit card for purchases with different currencies.
