    Just order it. You have a Money back Guarantee at eBay.

    I have used fleabay and Rakuten and find the Japanese market to be more honest and ship / pack better than US sellers.

    I always thought so as well, until one time I was victim of fraud and had to run after my money. MAJOR stress, MAJOR effort and MAJOR disappointment, so bad that since then I buy almost nothing expensive on eBay anymore.

    Not disagreeing here on Japan purchases, just sharing my eBay money back experiences.

    What do you mean sir? Is it not guaranteed all the time?

    I've used Ebay for a small no. of transactions from Japan, Amazon for more still, and by far, Rakuten the most - literally dozens of watches bought from Japan via Rakuten. Never any issues with any of them, thankfully.

    It supposed to be. But in my case when push came to shove, things turned really ugly. It took lot's of stress, anxiety AND concentrated effort in my part to get my money back.

    SHORT version: first I got my money back instantly, but then seller must have appealed (and probably lied something) and eBay REVERSED my refund and declared the decision FINAL and SHUT the door on me. Things got extremely difficult from here.

    Most people would have probably given up, but I kept trying various avenues. I felt so deceived by eBay's money back policy and so upset, that at times I felt as if I'm going to get a stroke. I was really worried a stroke might happen. Some eBay reps that I talked were real PO$.

    Of course I NO LONGER feel comfortable about buying anything on eBay. I buy ONLY things on eBay that I absolutely can't find elsewhere. For other items I rather pay a premium if i have to, just to have a piece of mind.

    Re: Anyone order from Japan directly?

    ...and one more thing:

    Before anybody thinks, things that happened to me must only happen to bad eBay-ers and it won't happen to them - THINK TWICE !!!

    I have been on eBay since the early days. I spent tens of thousands of dollars on eBay purchases and sold over thousand dollars worth of stuff, with a cummulative feedback of 100.00% over ALL active years (only the app "eBay negs" would show that).
