It was fine and hot.

I went to a post office on my way to the office this morning to transfer money to two places.
One is by ATM, the other is by money order.
If you have an account and the payee has an account at Japan Post Bank, you can send money for nothing by ATM.
On the contrary, if you make a  money order, it costs yen 100 for 1 piece as handling charge.  There are 12 types of money order from yen 50 to yen 1000.  That is, 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400, 450, 500, 750, and 1000. 
I needed to send yen 2100, so there were 2 yen 1000 and 1 yen 100, and handling charge was yen 300.  To make yen 100 money order costs yen 100 handling charge seems ridiculous.  If you make yen 50 money order, it costs yen 100, which is double of what to send. I do not understand how they decided the cost.

I think cryptcurrency will have demand and will be popular in the near future to resolve these unreasonable costs.
