Looking for a good Fat Bike

Hi all, I'm looking for a decent, budget-priced Fat Bike (basically, a mountain bike with fat, 4-inch tires). Anyone know of any good, reliable online dealers for fat bikes (used or new) in Japan? Any Japanese brands you recommend? Thanks!

    For cost performance: Buy it at http://www.wiggle.jp they ship from their warehouse in UK, most of the time after import tax is still cheaper than you buy it in Japan. After you bought the bike you still need to bring your bike to a bike shop and register it with the Koban. If you don't register and the police stop you with the bike you need to know your Japanese! Most local bike shop don't like it when you bring your bike to register, they want you to buy from their shop. When you buy from the shop they will help you with fitting, register and maintenance. I personally bought from Wiggle, but I recommend you to buy from local bike shop near your home.

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.
