get something:
that doesn't need drivers
has the ability to run off of batteries or american power
you can actually use (i.e. even the buttons are in english)

also, remember the tax to bring the stuff into the country.

Sake is great.. all the drunkeness but none of the hangover :)

I would suggest.. MiniDisk, digicam and any cell phone you can find that will run off an avaliable technology such as G3 or GSM phones.

Or you could always go to the vending machiens and buy school girls panties

For some reason, I'd be a little nervous about mixing water and electrical devices around that particular region of my body... (anyone who has discover an electrical fence while relieving themself, please raise your hand now. ):eek:

Ahh 2002, mini disks and palm pilots. Come to think of it, cell phones and cameras too. All four of those are now one device lol.
