I have heard that Japan Luggage (www.jluggage.com) offers cheap(-ish) overseas shipping services. Apparently the FAQ section of their site will help to answer a lot of questions about shipping things home.
Here's a list of some shipping companies in Japan (alphabetical order).
If any of you can recommend any other shipping companies, please contact us and we will add them to the list.
