Price of Nippon Vogue
Newbie here. My first post. I live in the United States (Hawaii to exact). Barnes and Nobles here sells Nippon Vogue for $19.99. I know it must cost more to import it from Asia....but I didn't think it would be that much!!! The japanese cover price is 680 yen which translates to only about $6.15 American. Has anyone in the US been able to obtain issues of NV for a less inflated price? Hope someone can help me? =)

Hi thanks! =) I'm looking at the Vogue Nippon I bought and it says "680 yen" on the cover. Maybe my calculations are off?? Doesn't 680 yen convert to about $6.15 US? Yes it is expensive to import any magazine from japan and europe indeed. =( Just wanted to know if it was sold in the US for less than what Barnes and Nobles is charging.

It'd be too expensive to import them from Japan....I'm afraid you'll have to buy from Barnes & Noble.

post services from nppon is the most exxy in the world just because in Japan all is expensive( but honestly-they`re the greatest-not like in US of europe )

You can get Vogue China in France? I'm jealous because it isn't available in the Netherlands as far as I know

I have been able to buy Vogue Nippon consistently for $9.70 at this Japanese bookstore a few blocks from my house.

I also buy Elle japon, and even some Korean magazines for less than $10.00.

I am in San Jose, CA.
