(2)Dude you should get a good travel bag that can carry 2-3 boards. In most boardbags you need to remove the fins, so it wont be as pricy as you think.
If you decide to get a boardbag, and take it to Japan. If you are staying at a hotel, or you have any friends out there. The cheapest way to bring your boards is just to ship it. You could probably use the Hotel address and it could be shipped straight to your room. I'm preety sure you could send it before hand, by calling up the hotel, asking for someone that speaks english,then ask if they can store ur boardz 4 u
