If you want to acquire these stamps and you don't live in Japan, they'll likely cost you a whole lot more than that. The post office is not taking any mail orders – you have to pick them up in person. Perhaps worse than that, only 1,000 sheets will be available. If you have a friend in Japan, you might want to have them head down to the post office on February 1 to pick some up for you. If not, there will no doubt be some on eBay before long.
