We have a similar problem in Canada. The importer is not really interested and seems to specialize in camping and sporting goods. Also very expensive, and they should not be given that the $C > $US lately. So I mail order from the US. The amount saved makes it worth while not to have a warranty (although I could take it back to the US or mail it to Japan I guess). We have to pay the GST on entry, but so what? I'd have to pay it anyway but in this case it's on a lesser amount - so save there too. The only thing we have to watch our for is the bogus brokerage fee charged by UPS and some other couriers. So I try to ship by postal service. In that case, no fee. My message: Mail order from the USA is good!
