After spending a good amount of time in Japan, I realize that I have accumulated more stuff than I could carry in my flight (which allows me 2 check-in pieces free of cost, but this is a third piece).
Thus, I would like to send a full size suitcase, which would be about 20kg from Japan to Atlanta,GA. Now the catch is that I don't care how long it takes as long as it arrives safe and sound.
The catch is I myself am not directly going to the US, rather I am first taking a flight to India (NRT - DEL w/ Air India) and then after a short trip of about 10 days, a flight with Lufthansa from DEL - FRA - ATL. After carefully considering, taking a 3rd piece with me is not an option I believe.
My current best bet is to use Japan Post's Surface Mail service which would cost me about 10,000 JPY but will take about 2 months. Are there,
Any cheaper options with a similar time frame
Option with similar cost but with a shorter time frame
If the options involve lugging the 3rd piece with me on the flights, I will be happy to do that as well, but my research has told me that this is quite unlikely.
