It is always a joy to receive a postcard from Japan, so imagine my delight when I recently received yet another envelope from there from our friendly postman. This time, Mummy Clang sent me a gotochi card of Hokkaido and Miyagi, as well as a winter gotochi mailbox card. I love them all and am stoked to add them to my growing collection! 💖
Gotochi are colorful Japanese cards that represents symbols, like landscapes, dishes, or costumes of each prefecture. These cards are designed and distributed by the Japanese Postal System. They are very popular among postcrossers but they are also harder to find and quite more expensive than regular postcards. You can read more about gotochi in this Postcrossing.com post.
Mummy Clang also included this lovely clear book, where I am planning to store my gotochi collection. Thanks ever so much, Mummy Clang, for your thoughtfulness. Will make sure to send you something from the Philippines real soon! 😊
