Buying A Lens From Japan

In interested in a Nikon lens from Japan but curious about this statement on the listing:

"International Buyers - Please Note:Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost.These charges are the buyer's responsibility.Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding or buying."

The lens is around $100 and shipped via E-Packet.  Anyone with experience buying from Japan and having to pay an extra charge bringing the lens into the country (US)?  Thanks for any replies.
