how to know when spending more for free shipping is a good deal

Going to purchase something online. Shipping is expensive. A larger purchase will get me free shipping, but the cost would be more than the cost of the smaller purchase plus shipping. How do you analyze decisions like this? [more inside]

How can I get an item only sold within Japan to the U.S.?

I want to buy a specific Japanese item, but neither the maker nor amazon.co.jp will ship this item to the U.S. This item is not being sold in the U.S. or the U.K. I don't currently have any friends in Japan. Do I have any options?

What is the best way to ship something from the Internet to Asia?

I would like to ship a gift from North America to Southeast Asia. Shipping costs from Amazon are very high - >= the cost of the item (a hardcover book). Would it be best to ship from Amazon, buy it locally and ship from here, or find an online retailer in Southeast Asia that stocks the item I'm looking for (would need suggestions here as well!)? I need 3-4 weeks shipping time max. Also, would I generally need to worry about customs if I ship this as a gift?
