Shipping Options Japan To Australia

We have way too much stuff in Japan and want to ship some of our collections of things like kimono, books, and souvenirs, to Australia for when we eventually return one day. KuroNeko? JP Post? I'm looking for the cheapest delivery option. We're staying in Japan, so the time it takes for the boxes to arrive doesn't matter. Thanks for any suggestions!

    My suggestion is to go directly to the closest post office to ask about it. There are several options and since time isn't an issue, you don't need to do EMS or even air mail. The local shipping will be fine. Bring your box in, pack them as tight as you can, and ask for the 一番安い ichiban yasui (cheapest) option. I don't know if Kuroneko even ships overseas, actually...

    Thanks Jackson. Kuroneko offer complete international moving services from packing to setup on the other side. To Australia, I'm struggling to find somewhere that offers shipping via any method other than air mail. Air mail is so expensive.

    In the end of 2014 I sent around 8 boxes of my belongings back to Germany after my Working Holiday stay. Cheapest way I could find was "surface mail" by Japan Post. The boxes went to Germany by ship and it took between 2~3 months for them to arrive, but at least the price was ok if you think of what you have to pay for air mail... http://www.post.japanpost.jp/int/service/dispatch/index_en.html

    I have once posted some gift items to friend in Australia and I used Japan post's EMS service. That was fast and reliable.

Akita/Niigata in March

I´m planing to visit the Akita and Niigata prefecture at the end of March. What about the weather during that season? Is it still snowing? If yes how about the train situation? I guess because those prefectures are used to snow there will be no problem... Some experience of people living in these areas will be helpful!
