I'd like to know have any of you have ever done a little shopping service for your local community and friends when you visited Japan?
I am going to Tokyo later this year and I thought of offering a shopping service to people I know who want items from Japanese stores. I thought of taking a small commission fee and taking the items with me in an extra suitcase back to the US.
What do you think? Have you done this sort of thing before? What amount of commission might be normal for this kind of thing? What sorts of rules might come in handy?
