I have to go to Japan for a couple of days in September. Can anyone make some recomendations on a few lures i should buy that are not available here. I mean a few as it is a hand luggage only trip.

Thanks

Nick,
Almost any thing can be ordered from japan.
But I would look at Zipbaits, 123F and the new 123F tidal (super shallow version, out in september)
BassDays LogSurf 124F
Daiwa Morethan X Cross 95F and 120F
Mars Barrow (soft/hard hybrid bait) 130mm
All well know and highly thought of in Japan.

Where in Japan are you going?
I would second the Daiwa Xcross and look at some of the other Daiwa lures like various Shore Line Shiners. They are different lures to the Saltiga minnows available here and a wider range of colours.

I dont know whether they are all available in UK but I'd look for Duel and IMA (there are some limitied editions) lures especially.
