Warning: If you're overseas right now (at the time of writing, September 2021) and don't have residency in Japan, there's a high chance you won't be able to get into Japan. Japan's entry restrictions have been strict during the pandemic, with no signs of letting up soon.

CDJapan ships overseas, and from personal experience (shipping to the US), items come fairly quickly if you order ahead and choose DHL/FedEx. To buy from CDJapan:
