Ironman: Wanda why?

Chinese billionaire is obviously in it for the long run

A man walks past a post office in Tokyo, Thursday 6 July 2006. Japan Post and Rakuten Inc., operator of a major virtual shopping mall, plan to jointly enter the Internet auction business, sources close to the matter said Thursday. Starting in September, the state-run postal firm's Yu-Pack parcel service will be used to deliver goods bought via an auction system that allows both buyers and sellers to remain anonymous.
Japan Post hopes the partnership will boost its Yu-Pack business.
