Some were ridiculous bargins (multiple copys of boards, 2 days left, no bids, 1000yen - compare to £50 quotes for a uk seller), some not so much. The problem is if I buy 1, i'll want something else, then something else, then it all piles up :evil:


It is far too tempting & I have no money in my account, nor do intend to put any in before Christmas for that sole reason.

You've got to factor in:

Cost of item
commission
Wire Fee
internal shipping
International shipping to you

What it essentially means is that the 1000y board would only really be a bargain if it was selling for £50+ over here. Shipping from Japan to the UK has nearly doubled in price over the last couple of years & the exchange rate has dropped. To make it work now it best to only buy things that you cannot get over here (like artwork, old boards, specialist stuff) or combine a lot of low cost stuff from the same seller to cut down on the shipping.

That being said you do get the odd insanely good bargain


Hmmm if you guys want, shipping to the USA is VASTLY cheaper from Japan (typically only costing about 5 USD or so), I could serve as a proxy for you guys and bundle things up if you think it would save you a TON of money.

Is it possible to search completed listings on YHJ? I've tried using google to translate the search options page but it didn't reveal any such option.

Anybody know where all the regular sellers on YJA went? Selection has been pretty slim lately and I was hoping to buy some CPS2 games to toss in with some stools I'm gonna have shipped surface

Just to see what prices certain games have been selling for. I presume that's how most of you guys seem to know the correct market value of whatever it is you're on the lookout for without having to resort to price-check threads? Well, that and keeping an eye on forum sales trends.

I'm pretty sure there's no way to search for completed listings on Yahoo Auctions. The only way I've found of finding anything is to search in Google for the name of the game and hope it pops up.

Just a heads up to all the people who cant read Japanese. If you download google chrome, it has google translator build right in. So just visit a foreign page and click translate. So much better then hopping between two tabs copy and pasting.

Google Translate works on entire browsing sessions - why would you need to copy and paste? Just head to http://www.google.com/translate - enter the web site address and job done!

Really? I use it all the time and except a few crashes (which I got from being on the bleeding edge developer builds) it's never been a problem.

The google translate functionality also comes with the google toolbar, for those firefox enthusiasts.

Yeah Google Chrome is an absolute wreck when it comes to obeying the rules of computer security, but then most of Google's consumer stuff does that. They don't give a **** so long as it's easy.

What security issues does Chrome have, exactly?

I use Chrome as my primary browser and I have had zero security issues or crashes with it. It DOES have some issues rednering certain web sites properly, but beyond that, it is easily a better browser than Firefox or IE.

Just a quick tip on translating game names, commonly wikipedia will have the japanese name in the first line of the article for the videogame's wikipage, if the videogame is from Japan. I'm not sure if it's 100% correct all of the time, but most of the time it does just fine. If the name is present, check the left hand column of the site - it gives links to international wikipedia's that have an article on the game, and often you'll find the Japanese wikipedia article there, which will obviously have the name translated as well.

here you go.

I used google translate and translated Hori.jp. You can hover over any block of translated text and it'll show the untranslated version. Copy paste that back into google translate, and translate it to english. From there you can hover over the english translation and it'll show which part of the Japanese text it is translating, that way you can remove all the stuff you don't want :)
