How much money did you / will you / do you think you should put in the envelope for a 7-5-3 ceremony at a shrine?

    Whenever I go visit a shrine I always put a 5 yen coin. I guess the donation must be an increment of 5, maybe 5000 yen.

    Usually you should give 5000 or 10000 Yen. This is the price for most of the shrine ceremonies not only for 7-5-3 celebration.

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.
