Ichiban Kan to ship internationally soonish

This is slightly old news, but anyway - in a Feb. 3rd entry on their blog, Ichiban Kan announced that there are 'major changes' coming their online store site in mid-February. The change of most interest is probably that their new shipping system will allow them to do shipments to Hawaii, Alaska and international (they say they will start with limited countries, so we shall see what they might be). I guess this is very good news especially for people in HI,AK and Canada. I'm not sure about other countries - I am assuming that their base prices may be a bit higher than merchants in Japan or even China, but it will be interesting to see.
