Thanks^ I agree, she does not work at a Japanese airport, but she does generally know how customs work (aka, if I was going the other way, out of Japan, I would never even attempt this as bags are screened at departing airports, and unless you are chosen they are not checked at the arriving airport.) and has gone through Narita multiple times, so she does have some good input. She's had similar experiences, never being searched or seen anyone searched, and she was actually surprised to learn that she brought in some illegal pain medications, which she didn't know at the time.

My prescription is a bit overpowered, so I could stretch the three months out
