Buying a camera from Japan?

Hey all -- I'm looking for a particular old film camera and there are several for sale on eBay from Japan (I'm in the US). One that I like has a $15 shipping cost, and the "fine print" says that there may be extra custom fees or import duties for which the buyer is responsible.

Has anyone purchased a camera from Japan that was shipped to the US? Any problems with hidden fees or other issues about which I should know?

Thanks in advance!

Aaron
