Aldo wrote in asking if I knew of any mail order-type/intermediary companies that accept domestic shipments from within Japan and then ship them overseas. I haven't ever tried to do this myself (since I still live in Japan, of course), but I thought perhaps some of you out there might be wondering the same thing, or know someone who is.
I thought the following might be possible options:
Flutterscape (probably not as useful if there is something exact you want and prefer to order it directly, but
JShoppers (not viewable from within Japan - goes to company site instead if you are)
Aldo wrote back and suggested Tenso, which he chose to go with.
Do you have any recommendations for mail forwarding companies in Japan that ship overseas? Let us know in the comments!
