Yahoo! Japan is the biggest Japanese auction site where you can find rare and well-preserved "junks" from time to time.

Here you can see all the currently listed items under the"Win CE" category:

I am used to using a service called Buyee which takes care of transporting the items both locally in Japan and to Hong Kong. Postage is acceptable, delivery is really fast (usually within a week) and the customer service is very good so far. Not sure if there are similar services in other countries. Also probably the biggest obstacle is the batteries contained within the devices. Interestingly I have never had any troubles shipping electronic gadgets with batteries to Hong Kong. (And even better there's no import tax ... well for now )

Help save the good old buddies!

I've used Buyee a couple of times myself, primarily looking for Casio BE-500s (the Japanese version of the BE-300). Takes a while to get here in the US, though: the last item I won in a Yahoo! Japan auction took two months to get here, since the seller delivers it to the Buyee warehouse first, and then Buyee ships it to the buyer.
