Japan shipping costs

This is a question the Japanese can answer - I used to buy CDs from CDJapan but only super expensive shipping options are available now even though the Covid problem is virtually over. Lots of good CDs available at very reasonable prices but no way am I going to pay $23.56 shipping when the CD costs $10.17. Is this the same for all shipping from Japan, this company and an awful lot of other Japanese companies must be losing a lot of business because only hugely expensive options are available.
