My girlfriend lives in Japan right now and I want to get her a Christmas gift. The only problem is that postage from USA to Japan is really high and I'd rather spend more money on getting her a gift than postage so I've decided to send her a gift through an online store that is already in Japan. I looked at amazon.co.jp but it disappointed me as far as its selection (and price) goes. I realize things in Japan are more expensive which is okay, but I just want to make sure I am getting the most value so which online store would be the best place to get reasonably priced gifts? And sites in English (or with an English option) would obviously be a big plus.
