The Nikor will hold more film (12 sheets) than the liter of developer is rated for. Every other slot is a good match for chemistry volume to emulsion area.
Thank you everyone for lots of great input. I will give it some more thought and probably have my wife bring something back in her suitcase in May.
I've been using a Jobo 2000 series tank since 1976, these were pre-rotary and mine takes two reels each holding 6 sheets. You need 1 or 2 litres of solution depending on whether you use 1 or 2 reels.
For economy I used replenished Xtol, very quick and easy, or Rodinal, these days I only use Pyrocat HD. When I moved to Turkey I placed a wanted advert on this forum and bought a second tank to leave there.
Since we're dealing with "what ifs" and the OP's in Japan, The Patterson & MOD54 may be less expensive to ship & it's considered a very good combination.
Thanks John. B&H wants over $40 to ship to Japan for either the Yankee or Patterson & Mod54. I haven't seen the Jobo unit for sale online in the U.S. so I don't know how much cheaper it is there than here where the tank and reel come to $170.
But like I said earlier, my wife is going to the U.S. in May as both of our sons are graduating (college and H.S.) so I'll probably make up my mind by then and have her bring something back for me.
I have been using a Yankee daylite sheet film developing tank for 30 years n love it!
I see B&H has it for $38.
