Profiteering is a strong word

Japanese companies had to raise their price in other countries to make up for their currencies going way down.

The trend has reversed in the last few months. Obviously the same companies are using this opportunity to beef up their profits in yens. It is also wise to avoid following the trend too closely. In any case one of them will blink soon enough and lower its prices. Thanks to competition we'll see the prices go down again (except in Japan of course). Canon, we're counting on you  !

That's what any other company in any part of the world would do. You'd do the same if you were the head of one of these companies.
