While in the post office buying Japanese flower definitives, I spotted another favourite Japanese series: International Letter Writing Week. This issue is from 2016.
I have just got back from Japan (my favourite country). I went to the post office in Tokorozawa and couldn’t resist these flower definitives. (The sakura was still out around Mount Fuji.)
Doraemon is a robot cat from the future. He is my daughter’s favourite cartoon, and he has made it on to postage stamps several times. Here is the 1997 issue from Japan.
Last year I was in Tokyo at the same time that Japex 2013 came to town: a lucky coincidence!
This series of flower stamps were issued in Japan in 1961 – over 50 years ago.
This souvenir sheet from JP Post features Japanese railways and their distinctive locomotives from around the country and through history.
These 4 stamps feature beautiful landscapes by Hiroshige, chosen by JP Post to commemorate International Letter Writing Week in 2013.
