I have found a few US suppliers of the region 1 edition of this film. 
I have ranked them according to the total cost of having the film
shipped within the US (with the cheapest shipping option).

Tampoo:
$23.45 (usually ships within 48 hours)
http://www.tampoo.com/item.php?upc=774212410239&category_id=DVD

CD Universe:
$25.99 (preorder - available Dec 14, 2004)
http://www.cduniverse.com/productinfo.asp?PID=6792745&style=movie

Doulmite (an ebay.com seller):
$32.22 ("Buy it now" price)
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=617&item=6326462852

Inetvideo (a "Marketplace seller" at amazon.com):
$32.48 (Usually ships in 1-2 business days)
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000639N3Q/

As thundt-ga mentioned in a comment, you could also place a bid for
this movie at ebay.com:
http://search.ebay.com/kitchen-stories
The lowest bid for an used copy of this DVD is currently $3.99 (plus
4 shipping) (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=617&item=6327336031)
or $14.97 (plus $5.25 shipping) for a new one
(http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=617&item=6326462852).

I hope this provides the information you need.  If not, please request
an answer clarification.

Search strategy:
Search term on www.froogle.com: "kitchen stories" DVD
I also searched at www.amazon.com and www.ebay.com

Well if you purchase them you can buy a allregion dvd player. Or if
you have a dvd player on your computer you can download a region
unlocker.

There are several available on Ebay right now.  (Sellers "moviez!" and
"Doulmite", for example.)

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=617&item=6326186108

There seem to be ones with a white cover which are Region 2, and ones
with an orange cover which are Region 1.  (Region 1 is North America,
and if you are in the US most likely you have a DVD player that only
plays Region 1 discs.  To play DVDs from other regions, you would need
a multiregion player, as the previous comment says.)

If you go the Ebay route, you might want to confirm with the seller
that a given DVD is for a particular Region, before buying.  Also
check for widescreen/fullscreen format, if you care about that.

Yes, you can buy it from Amazon.

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000639N3Q/qid=1096409302/sr=8-3/ref=pd_ka_3/102-1903500-8320944?v=glance&s=dvd&n=507846

This is region 1, which is playable on U.S and Canadian systems

Thanks everyone I have bid on the one for sale on ebay and so far it looks 
like I will get it. Otherwise I am happy to find some additional options.  
I appreciate your efforts as I very much wanted a copy of this
somewhat obscure film. Bea
