Question regarding shipping products to Japan

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I don't know if this is an appropriate board/place to ask this kind of question, but I wasn't sure where else to ask.


Currently, I'm living in Japan, and I would like to order a three-month supply of the Rogaine foam, but to have it shipped here would cost $150!


I then thought it would be cheaper to have it sent to my parents' house, and then have them ship it here. I'm not familiar with shipping things in general (let alone abroad), so I went to the USPS's homepage to see how much it would cost.


When 'creating a package' to estimate the cost, I'm only asked to enter the item's value; not weight. Anyway, to have it shipped this way would cost about $80.


I couldn't believe it. The Rogaine foam weighs 1.25 pounds.


Could it really be that much to ship such a small/light item?


I was thinking that I could just order three three-month supplies. Then, the shipping only amounts to $150, or so.


Anyone have any advice, or suggestions? Thanks,
