Nipponese domestic buying power if down full 50% and they are having a political meltdown over there because of it. Its very quickly devolving into a second world country and not in the way we joke about the US becoming but 100% for real. Just heating their shit homes is costing the average Nipp 12% of their yearly income.

You can probably negotiate down a US dealer to that price anyway because GS falls like a rock

Im assuming you can negotiate down the yen price too but the truff of it is they wont negotiate down the price of hot models like the Snowflake -- only random SBG codes nobody wants to begin with. Core models in the collection arent going to see 20% discounts. This is also true of every single brand that isnt Rolex or Tudor. Omega will come down 20% on random Aquaterras or Seamaster 300s too. With Panerai or Hublot in this market you can pay 50% of retail all the live long day -- but again -- only for none core models you probably dont want anyway.

I was just there. Food is insanely cheap (πyou can get Michelin star food for $70 usd). Most international products are priced pretty equivalently. Japan is a super nice country (its cities are way nicer than the US and so is the food and the people).
