One-sided shipping.

For some reason, it’s much cheaper to ship things to the US from Japan, and with about twice the options. I can mail a standard-size box or padded envelope from Japan Post to America for between 500円 and 1200円, and they arrive in two to three weeks. Conversely, my mother sent me a smaller box of medicines and things that cost nearly $60. It got here in five days, but that was her only option. (The box was pretty damn timely, though at that price, I don’t intend to ask for anything else to be sent here unless it’s an emergency.)
