Second hand Lego in Japan

Hi, does anyone know where you can find second hand Lego in Japan. Ebay and other flea market sites seem to have slim pickings. A friend suggests that most Japanese throw the Lego away because they assume other Japanese won't touch it due to hygiene concerns. Thanks :)

Convection Oven Recommendations

I am looking for an oven like we have in the west. I am ok with a smaller size. I have been browsing on Amazon, but I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations? I want to get an oven to bake! Thank you!

Tips for a trip to Nagasaki/Fukuoka/Saga/Oita?

We're trying to head down to Kyushu for a little break later this year, and if you've been to any of the abovementioned prefectures before (or even live there!) I'd love to hear your suggestions for cool things to do and see - preferably the cool spots that guidebooks or online resources might not cover! Thanks in advance!
