Not unless you are taking your whole family with you and can use their luggage allowance.

Also note that retail prices in Japan are much higher than what the wholesalers charge. You'll be treated to a cup of tea, but you won't save money compared to a reputable dealer with connections here...

But wouldn't dealers here stack duty, tax, and shipping on to the price anyway?
