I went to the post office nearby but I came back with my errand undone!!! I wanted to send a package to A.D. who lives in the US. She sent us a big pack of US foods and snacks! The clerk said you couldn’t send any package over one pound to the US now and she didn’t know until when. OH, no!!
I want to send it to her right away but it seems that I have to wait until the gift season ends. Even though I know that is an inevitable action in the situation these days, but I think many of you might be so disappointed without happy gifts from friends and families in Japan.
You could have more info from here. http://www.japanprobe.com/2010/11/16/japan-post-places-restrictions-on-shipments-to-the-united-states/
So sorry, A.D.!!!
