    I'm not familiar with the LIFE card, but if your card has a pin number set up for cash withdrawal, you can possibly use it to take out cash in yen while in Japan (from 7 Bank at 7-11 for example). You could probably do the same thing in another country if you want another currency. (I've only done this once (years ago) with a US issued card with a visa / mastercard logo on it, so it depends on if your card is accepted in the ATM.)

    Credit card cash advance is the only option, as helloalissa had mentioned your card must set up with a pin number. Most card companies in Japan don't have English support unless it is premium credit card. Example: https://www.visasignatureconcierge.com Cash exchange in Japan also has a bad exchange rate, unless you have US dollar. In order to get the best exchange rate use your debit card or cash card and withdraw it with ATM.

Cheapest shipping method to the USA?

I want to send a box of clothing (probably weighing about 10kg) to the USA. What's the cheapest way to do so? Speed doesn't matter to me... Just as long as it arrives safely. Please don't link me to the JP postage calculator (https://www.post.japanpost.jp/cgi-charge/index.php?lang=_en) I'd like a service you've personally used/can recommend. And I guess if you've used JP, just let me know if you recommend it! Thanks :)

Long Golden Week - What's going on?

Did a bit of light research into flights during the long Golden Week this year. I knew things would be expensive but I was still surprised by the price of flights -- 400,000 yen + to go back to the UK, 200,000 yen + to Bali (if there are any direct flights left) -- basically I'm resigned to not leaving Japan. Just wondered what everyone else is doing, and if I might be able to steal some of your ideas? And open this up as a chance to air any long-Golden-Week-but-can't-afford-to-go-anywhere frustrations.
