I want my mom to send me a laptop from Bulgaria to Japan (Osaka), but I heard that if she does so I will have to pay customs. I've never paid for customs even in Bulgaria, so I'm kinda scared and would like to ask several questions regarding this.
How much do I have to pay for customs? The laptop is priced around $1500.
Do I have to have some kind of documents with me when I go to take the package?
If I can't manage to pay the customs what happens to the laptop?
Is there a way to bypass paying for customs? (if the customs are around 5k~15k yen I don't mind paying, but if it's higher it might be a problem for me)
