Will Miss #25 - Japanese postal service
I've had one epically stupid experience with the Japanese postal service and hundreds of relatively mundane good experiences. The main ward post office is open late at night and on weekends so you can send and receive items after work with ease. The Japanese postal service also is extremely reliable. My husband and I have sent literally hundreds of packages and letters to and from Japan and not one has ever been lost. What is more, Japan Post still offers seamail service so heavy items can be sent more economically by boat (while America has discontinued its surface rate service).
I'll miss the reliability, extended hours, and service of the Japanese postal service.
