That has traditionally been a hurdle when dealing with Japanese e-commerce, it seems the surcharges by the Japanese VISA etc are substantial for foreign currency transactions, a relic from the days when Tokyo Bank had a monopoly on foreign exchange. That leaves little margin for profit, hence the reluctancy to sell to customers with foreign issues credit cards.
