I couldn't tell you, they've never hit me with an import fee and I've been buying from Japan frequently the last couple of years.  I think it depends on the quantity that you order before the tariffs come into play.

I believe there is something called a "De Minimus" value below which no import fees will be charged by US Customs.  800 $USD.  There are exceptions and fine print, and overseas sellers don't want to make any claims that it will be duty free lest they end up holding the bag.

I am also not making any definitive claims that you won't get nicked. I wasn't charged anything on a $600 purchase of new merchandise DHLed from the EU a couple years ago.
