Has anyone bought a scope from Japan, since mid 2020?
Some reviewer did it before 2020 and the shipping cost via EMS was as low as 10,000+ yen ( less than 200 USD). However since mid 2020, the store Kyoei at Osaka Japan switched from EMS to DHL. I tried to get a shipping quote for a small refractor from the store master at Kyoei Osaka without luck. DHL online quote shows a hefty 600+ USD shipping from Japan. That is basically all the discount by buying from Japan.
Has anyone had the experience of buying from Japan to share?
