    It's no mystery. It's simply currency adjustments. The Yen is up against the Dollar 20% in the last year. Correspondingly, the price is up 20% in the last year. Similarly, the Yen is also up against the Euro. I guess it took 2 mins for this explanation to sink in from when we discussed it on Talkemount to when you brought the discussion over here. ;)
