Don't ask me. The last two bikes I bought overseas I brought back myself. The last frame I bought was in Japan.

Adding another data point, I bought a pair of wheels Wiggle and the tax/fees were about the 5.5% mark.

Bought a frame from Wiggle last summer. Frame was 118k. Shipping 2,600 yen (EMS). Import tax 7,200 yen.

thanks for your answers guys!
I think wiggle has some partnership as they are sending a lot of parcel... I can not see any price under 160pound so we're far from the shipping you paid!
Best would be flying with the box... anybody on the forum flying to Japan from Europe soon?! would actually be a great and useful thread !
