It was about 130 all in,had a full Japanese Customs declaration etc form on the front of the package giving the weight and price etc.,so maybe I was lucky.
Thanks for the warning for the future about buying from Japan though.

Apart from the cost of the item and very reasonable postage/package costs I didn't have to pay anything else.

No guarantee it won't happen next time. Custom charges are a bit of a lottery as to whether they get applied or not. I had stuff "uncharged" and "charged" from same suppliers all over the wirld whilst living in the UK. No such problem in OZ - customs limit starts at around $10K I believe,
