Just like the title says, how do you guys use yahoo japan? Even when I translate it with google I cant read half of what the auction is? Is there a secret I cant figure out?

Thanks,

Matt

It's best to make friends with someone who knows Japanese IMO.

Check out this site http://www.importclubaustralia.net/club/node/72/page/yahoo-auctions-japan

That should get you started. Also, when using the links from that site, you can click "translate" at the top of the Yahoo Auctions page and get the English translation directly below the Jap characters. Makes life a lot easier...

Using the above service I've bought over 3K worth of bits and pieces for my Supra, including a TOM's 340kmh speedo :)

Thats why you use Rinkya.com to bid through yahoo japan auctions.

When you guys sign up for the Yahoo Japan account what address info do you provide since it has to be in Japan?
Use Rinkya or www.crescent-shop.com

They bid for you and ship the merchandice to them and send it again to you.

I used Crescent to get some Tein HA's for the Supra. Worked like a charm, top service.
