Online shopping site in Japan

Which online shopping site in Japan is most user friendly for foreigners, i.e., has English service and most streamlined? I tried a few and when I click for an English version, it directs me to their foreign site which will charge exorbitant overseas shipping charges (as goods are shipped from outside Japan).

    By using Google Chrome browser with instant on-line translation makes it relatevly easy to shop on most of Japanese web sites. Amazon.co.jp is probably the best choice overall. By buying a gift certificate in any convenience store, you can do easy shopping even without credit card.

    I agree with the others here. I think amazon.jp is pretty easy to navigate with minimum Japanese, and can easily calculate postage to your Japanese address.

    Amazon JP has a lot of English on its basic platform, other than the descriptions of items that the sellers type themselves which you can try to Google translate. Shipping is great on amazon JP too.

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 :)
