I am heading to Japan in December, if its much cheaper in Aus (considering the Yens strength) happy to buy it here for you and sell it to you at cost when I hit Kyoto (I think we are there around the 15th of December).
Much appreciated, just got back from a few days away looking at houses to buy.
I will check the prices in OZ and get back to you.
Other comments appreciated and I am definitely going to give it a try, seems I better go with one of the thinner layers otherwise I will be too hot. I haul ass when boarding and don't take any breaks all day when the pow is good. Gondola ride is my break/eating time.
I can't wait much longer for the snow. Should be less than 3 weeks now.
