    Maybe a UU member living in Japan can accept delivery for the OP and then ship it to the OP at the OP's expense?

    Larrivee ukuleles are produced in Canada and California, so they might be available somewhere closer to you than Japan.

    Their site doesn't say anything about ukuleles, but they do provide a list of dealers, you might get lucky:

    They don't make them anymore, not for some years. They seem to be very hard to find too. I think I have come across FIVE on the internet (scored a sweet Koa 10K) and I searched fairly deep.

    I emailed the company but I don't expect a responce.

    HAH, scored it! I emailed last night asking if they would consider shipping overseas and just got a very friendly reply that they will and it's only about $80.

    As a professional translator, I roared with laughter at this one:

    Obviously, Google Translate is good enough to get an idea of what a page is about, but can you imagine trusting it professionally? I've seen some wonderful howlers over the last few years as more and more companies do trust to Google Translate to try and sell their image to the world.

    Thought that was funny too. Back in the 70's I worked for a small piano shop that sold Kawai Pianos. The shipping paper woven between the strings said "this paper designed to keep strings off of rust"
