Buying a Q7 in Japan?

Hi guys! I'm traveling to Japan in a short while (Sapporo), and have been thinking of picking up the Pentax Q7 double lens set while I'm there, most likely from Yodobashi. From what I'm seeing, it seems to be over $80 cheaper than in the US? Is there anything I should watch out for, like warranty issues, etc..?

The price shown in the store includes local sales tax, if you show them your passport, you will save 8% (I think) tax. They will also provide documents (including serial number and store stamp) to you for 1-year international warranty outside of Japan. Good luck and enjoy your trip there.

Take a picture or ad showing what you want. Almost every clerk I have dealt with at Yodobashi was very limited in English. We invariably fell back on my poor Japanese as being better than their English. The Yodobashi in Sapporo is within reasonable walking distance from the Sapporo station.
