    sorry to say but there are no "cheap" gsm phones in japan, they dont use gsm over there... u can only find 3G phones that also have gsm capability, like the sony ericsson v800 or the sharp 902...

    after u bring it over, u gotta flash/unlock it assuming u cant read japanese, and u want to use it with a carrier back home
