    You can try auctions.yahoo.co.jp, that is one of the more widely used sites.

      Regarding buying a used car from the auctions, I'm going through the process right now.

      I'm updating the following thread as I go about it:

          Your best choice is to buy from other gaijin who leave Japan. Check craigslist or metropolis.co.jp for 'sayonara sales'.

            yahoo auctions is the main one. But you need a Japanese credit card to bid over 5000yen, which is a bit of a pain (you need to sign up for 315yen/month to bid over 5000yen, and they only accept Japanese CCs)

            mbok.jp can use international CCs (400yen/month). Selection is a little smaller than yahoo auctions, but payment etc is a little smoother since it all goes through a central payment system, somewhat like paypal - much easier to get refunds

            http://auction.rakuten.co.jp/ is another

              In Japan there are also "recycle shops" everywhere where you can find (usually) cheap secondhand stuff. For basic stuff it'd probably be cheaper just to go to the local used shop vs. paying shipping etc.
