I was also able to get a hold of a Japanese Net Yaroze at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo. Very exciting! Sadly, though, I was unaware at the time of the second box, which can be seen here in this image; Holds all of the necessary cables, cards, discs, and books in order to make the actual system usable as a development kit. If someone here knows about this, or is able to find one in the attic or something, please contact Wolfgame 0 -at- gmail. Chris, myself, French Rice Games(!), and The Portland Indie Game Squad would be much appreciative if you were able to find the second box.
