Post Living in Japan, Need Parts.

Any of you living in Japan? I have been here for a few years now, but this will be my first shaken experience.
I need to buy a few things either from Toyota or a good brand that isn't going to blow me out of the water on price.
Searching online isn't really getting me anywhere. Do you guys just go directly to the Toyota parts shops or to the dealerships? Do you have any cheap places that you buy from?
After seeing some of the prices here for parts online, I'm almost tempted to buy from shops in the US and have them shipped here. There has to be a better and cheaper option!
Any advice from you expats or natives would be much appreciated!

I'm not sure what your budget is, but Toyota parts in North America are relatively inexpensive as far as import parts go. I find Nissan & Mazda parts pricey, the only import parts cheaper I find are Honda parts.

You can try Conicelli Toyota or Lithia Toyota. If you stick w/ Conicelli for a while and buy their parts, they send 10% to 20% discount e-coupons once in a while.

Thanks for the info, that's actually what I was thinking about doing. That or rock auto on the super cheap end of things. Shipping rotors across the ocean is pretty pricey though.
I'll check with those Toyota parts places to see if they are just wholesale or do over the counter business too.

Lithia is in Oregon. No sales tax but no idea what shipping would be. I also have no idea if they can just have them drop-shipped from Toyota themselves or if they have to have Toyota ship to them and then they ship it out. Worth calling and seeing what they can do for ya.

Does Amazon Prime roll inter-continental? Find the correct PN on RockAuto, then see if Amazon has it and will ship over to you? Works for brake stuff, rotors, etc.
