Japan Week - 2


Letter sent from Japan to Morocco. However, the sender comes from Germany, the receiver from Spain. And they communicate in French. That is called international mail.

I think the stamp is just perfect. It belongs to the series of four issued in October 9, 2013, to commemorate the International Letter Writing Week. Its an annual issue (since 1958), with the aim of contributing to the world peace by encouraging cultural exchange amongst people of the world through letter writing.

The images are taken from The Fifty-Three Stations of the Tōkaidō, a series of woodcut prints by the Japanese artist Utagawa Hiroshige (1797 – 1858), inspired by his own journey along the Tokaido road. It features Odawara, 9th posting station.
