What about sekaimon? That's powered by ebay. I saw 1 hellatone speaker on there. I'm sure there's other options too...

Sekaimon is actually more expensive than a direct eBay purchase, sadly. For those eBay sellers willing to ship overseas, and willing to use USPS Priority, shipping may not be that bad ($50). But most larger operations prefer UPS air, which can be as high as $150 for a speaker. Sekaimon uses an even higher rate, unless you specify UPS ground ... which is still on the order of $80, and they won't guarantee an arrival time sooner than 6-8 weeks.

I've lived in Japan for near 40 years, and have explored many, many shipping methods. Of course, the best is to "pack-mule" it back home when I visit the US, or when someone comes to see me, but baggage weights are coming down ... and over-weight baggage is going up.

still sighing ... :wink:
