If you speak japanese, or particularly can "read" japanese, could you help me?

There is a remote control that is the hardest to find in the world for me. Not available on any website I can find in the U.S. And my dad wants it so much. And I finally think I found it somewhere. But it's a japanese version of a website I know. I can't tell in any way what this ad says or if it's available.

Can anyone tell if I can contact this seller and buy it from over here? I know this is a bunch of trouble, so if you can't, I understand.

Is this the shipping method?


Located in a small "wound". HAHAHA!! The joys of translation tools.

I was just hoping someone had a yahoo japan account and could email him for me.

I like Japanese music and some of my friends have used "proxy services" to order CDs from Japanese yahoo auctions before. Something like this http://www.fromjapan.co.jp/ (I have no idea whether that's a good one, but it explains the idea). The specific one they used was a record store that offered the service, but I can't remember the URL.

Most Japanese sellers don't ship abroad so that's where such a service comes in, I think they also handle paying for the items.

But following the next line it says "For cleaning dirt will be possible". Obviously it is a used remote, and the previous owner inflicted a wound on himself due to improper handling of the device. Now he/she is warning you that you will have to clean it due to the accident.

Or maybe it has a hidden dirt scrubber, stain remover? Or even a mini broom pops out of the battery compartment?

For buying things like this, I have used shoppingmalljapan.com. Expect a delivery time of about 3 weeks.

Given the low price of this item, it may be worth it to take a chance and just buy it. Be aware that shipping will probably cost twice as much as the remote control.

I would also recommend shoppingmalljapan. It's an awesome service and can be trusted. Lots of people get their japanese games from there. They provide more options than just yahoo if you aren't sure and want to try searching other places for the correct model.
