Don’t recall if this has been discussed - but what is the (real) purpose for these blocks in Japan?

I would also recommend ordering in groups of at least 25. Shipping starts at 2000 yen (20 bucks more or less) and goes up form there. 50 is a good amount and comes very neatly packed in a box. I just tear off label one and put on label two. The shipping box also makes a very nice storage box, being exactly the right size.
So I take it buying 50 one time and then another 50 later is the same as buying 100 all at once from a shipping stand point?
Yes. They usually come in neat boxes of fifty though I did get a messy box of 70 once. When I ordered 100 they came in two boxes of fifty.

Wow. Have you really needed that many?
I put my CBS town and Castle up on blocks so that I can have cellars and sewers and a moat. 100 covers 160 square inches which works well with my layout.
So you are using them mostly as 4" tall rather than 2" tall?

The store has gotta be wondering. Rakuten probably wonders too as those blocks are the ONLY thing I have ever bought from them. It is highly amusing wondering what their reactions and speculations are.
You should ask them for a quote for something like a 1,000 of them just to see their reaction. ;)
