Hi,

Id hazard a guess at it being the level of the bridge..

Have you tried raising slightly on the problem strings?

If not, give it a go....If its not that then maybe old strings? Im not sure other than that.

You can raise the action or file down the seventh fret, or rather have it filed down at a shop. Filing it down may simply cause the eighth fret to buzz. Always better to get an expert.

{I'm assuming that you are fretting at six and getting the buzz from the seventh.}

If u got a sprung bridge, add an extra spring and retune (get used to the harder bends!)
You can loosen the trussrod by 1/4 turn to give more curve without losing an otherwise nice action. If you are not confident with that, don't bother - just fit heavier strings.
Unless of course it is just the seventh fret, in which case give it a good hard whack with a hammer.

I love my tokai

You should go to a repair shop. Such things are not a big deal for them...
