So I'm trying to figure out a way to get an iTouch sent over to Japan for relatively cheap (they're expensive as hell over here thanks to the exchange rate).
I'm confused, they cost more here, so you're sending one to Japan?
Whatever it is you're trying to do, I'll agree that our National Postal service is a little odd at times. In all fairness to them, they've always given me crazy ETA's for out of country deliveries, but packages usually arrive within a week regardless. The most recent oddity was when I sent several games to various forum members. All packages had standard dimensions and very similar weights. Cost about $2 more for cheapest shipping option to send a game across the country versus to the US.
