I was testing out the new search engine Cuil (yes, yes, I was "Cuil-ing" myself, if you must know), and an article I had forgotten about popped up. I think I posted it straight to the Fukushima list-serv, and then someone asked to post it on a blog/newsletter. The article is my explanation of how to use Amazon Japan. I just used it again recently, and it’s even better in Tokyo. I ordered three things. Two of them were delivered within a few days. I got a shipping notice for the third item on Sunday at around noon, and it was delivered Sunday evening at around 7 or 8pm. Highly recommended.
