You can get a forwarder in the USA.. its basically you get an address for amazon to send it to and then the service forwards it on to you.. Its great and you can use it to buy almost anything in the USA that wont ship internationaly

Oh wow, im shocked! :\

Ishibashi will export IIRC or at least they did a few years ago.

BTW, you can get used J-customs for a lot cheaper used. My buddy bought one of the 2012 ones and sold it for like 2100ish recently..which is a nice discount if you're hunting for one.
