What would be some good games to buy in Japan that aren't available in the US?

I am planning to pick up Tales of Vesperia and Okami HD (physical copy), any other ideas? Things that have english text option like Okami does are preferable but I will consider anything cool.

Mobile Suit Gundam Senki Record U.C. 0081

I also hear Gundam Unicorn is great too.

*Seriously, not a Gundam fan either*

Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky HD.

..or I guess as it's titled in Japan "Eiyuu Densetsu: Sora no Kiseki FC Kai HD Edition".

Math problems are the ultimate trick question. No matter how straight forward and simple they seem, the answer is never what you think it is.

Mobile Suit Gundam Senki Record U.C. 0081 is good the menus are in English, weapons and parts are in Katakana can get it used for 20$ from Amazon.
Another good one if you like the Yakuza games is Ryu Ga Gotoku Kenzan! can get that for 26$ from PlayAsia though it's completely in Japanese though if you don't mind you can watch the story with subs on Youtube . Also Ryu Ga Gotoku 5 if it doesn't come out here which it seems like won't so far.

Well at Gamestop you can get a rubber ducky, a water gun, or a pirate sleeve Wii bundle.

Oh yeah forgot about that Ex Troopers has a demo on the Hong Kong Store and the Japanese store if you want to try it, it reminds me of Megaman Legends it comes out next week. Capcom said they wouldn't bring it to the states since the way it's graphics are they say it's too Japanese. Here are some links to buy it if you want.

Thanks for the ideas, I'll go to a bunch of used game stores when I am there and see what I find.
