Where to purchase a Japanese PRS-650 from the US?

I'm new here, and new to e-readers, so I'd appreciate any help I can get! My wife is Japanese but we live in the US, and I want to purchase a Sony Reader (probably a PRS-650) for her, as it seems to have the best book selection out of all the Japanese readers (correct me if I'm wrong).

However, I can't find any stores, B&M or online, that ship Japanese Sony Readers to the US. Any suggestions? She reads a ton of paperbacks, and I think this would make a great birthday present if I can get my hands on it (too bad I'm not heading to Japan anytime soon). If all else fails, I can use a proxy service, but I'd rather go the most straightforward route. Thanks for your help!

Thanks, I actually ended up doing that. I was hoping there was an easier way to do this, but I fortunately have friends that were willing to help out. Now we'll see how good this thing is!
