AppleInsider compared cached versions of the Apple's Japanese online store and found the 16 GB iPad selling for 49,800 yen, vs. 42,800 yen from last April. As of this writing, that reflects a change of approximately US$70 difference. Similarly, the iPad mini is selling for 32,800 yen vs. 28,800 yen last April.
