Thanks for the suggestion.  Global Rakuten has what I am after.  Now I just have to figure out how much shipping will be.

For reference, I just had a TM Spider putter (Japan spec) shipped from a Rakuten store and it cost 2400 JPY (~$21) to California.

Head covers should be cheaper.

I have ordered many items from various sellers on Rakuten.  Never a problem, and never more than 5 days max to receive item once shipped.

I am in Japan right now, can take a look for you and can see if they have them here.  PM me and let me know, will be here until tomorrow then can ship over at cost from Hong Kong.

Thanks everyone for the info, and thanks to ekinwang for offering to pick them up. I ended up ordering them through Rakuten using the B-KENKOU golf shop. Delivered they were $110, which put shipping at about $25. They land at my door step in one week.  Like others have mentioned, fast considering they are shipped from Japan. Look how sweet they look with my bag.
