Increase in Japan's consumption tax rate to 8% starting April 1st, 2014

In case you haven't heard, a 2012 bill passed by the lower house of the Japanese diet will go into effect in just a few weeks. The bill will increase the consumption tax rate from 5% to 8% by April 1st, 2014. The rate will again be increased to 10% by October 2015.

Meta in particular has posted this notice on their official website. This means that there will be a change in item price and possibly also the postage price for all of the brands. Some of the shopping services I've used have mentioned this news on an email, so please be sure to check with your SS for any changes in fees. Things will certainly be more expensive if you're importing from Japan!
