Calling any Japanese speakers/ dwellers!

Working on my presentation on Terence Conran reminded me that I've been meaning to track down a Satoria ashtray:It's been discontinued in the UK but I stumbled across this page on the Conran Japan site. I can't understand a word of it (and Google won't translate it for me).

Can you help at all?

Hi! Thanks for contacting me (and thinking of me JustJess).

My reading of Japanese isn't great, but I've had a look at the site. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that they ship overseas. Often Japanese online stores are quite bad for overseas sales and only accept bank transfers as payment.

BUT, just incase, I've sent them an email (in English) to see if they can help. I'll let you know if I hear from them.

Sorry I couldn't be much more help.
