    It's yahoo so I'd say it's as legitimate as internet businesses get. I think they are bigger than eBay in Japan. I've purchased from there a couple of times. As you're not in Japan you have to get someone to bid for you and ship it from Japan to you once they get the item. I use http://fromjapan.co.jp

    The entire process is explained pretty well at their site.

    I go to Yahoo Auction in Japan and reading the descriptions (I am half Japanese so I can read the language), not many of them like to ship overseas. It is probably better find something on ebay sold by a Japanese seller/merchant. I think buying it from ebay will end up about the same cost after all buying it from a third party. Just my opinion. Good luck!

    fromjapan.co.jp is a proxy buying service that ships internationally. Much has been written of them here, mostly or totally positive. A search would turn up hits. I've used them for 3 orders- always happy with the results. Depending on the item, it can be much cheaper than eBay.com simply because there is more listing competition.
