If you are tired of online chatting and texting as a main form of communication, why not bring back the nostalgic feeling of receiving and writing a letter? Japanese postcards and Japanese stamps are easy finds, available in post offices, konbini (convenience stores) and train stations kiosks. Post boxes, on the other hand, are situated in street crossings, buildings, and public facilities.
Domestic mails usually cost 52 yen to 120 yen depending on the size of the letter or postcard you are about to send. International mails are classified as: letter forms (letter, aerogrammes and postcards), parcel post, or EMS (Express Mail Service). The maximum weight for a single package is usually 20 kilos for parcels, which also differs depending on the destination. The dimensions of the content may also vary.
Letters and postcards going to Asia and Guam are priced from 70 yen to 160 yen; North America/Central America/Oceania/Europe/Middle East mail service costs 70 yen to 190 yen; and Africa/South America from 70 yen to 230 yen.
