And when did the Yen drop? Deluxe and Voyager prices are still high, but some of the stuff is US priced.
Part of it is better quality, a lot of it is just the general trend. Everything
is more expensive in Japan than it is in the US. It makes sense on some products, but by and large I don't get it.
The yen's exchange rate dropped within the last few weeks, and very suddenly. So everybody, import your stuff now before it skyrockets again! It's almost 1:1 and it ain't gonna stay that way for long. Maybe.
