Japanese spring postbox postcard

Japanese postbox Spring postcard

The lovely mail goddess Catwrangler recently took a trip to Japan, and I just got this wonderful spring postbox postcard from her. I love any postcards that have postal themes and/or show mailboxes, and I've been enamored of these Japanese postbox seasons postcards since I first saw them on Postcrossing. I have a summer one hanging above my writing desk already, and I was just thrilled to get this spring postcard, which will soon hang right next to it.

Cherry blossom stamp from Japan with postmark

Of course she used a gorgeous stamp, and it got a really fine postmark. I had to take photos of both the postmark, and...

Thanks, Anna - you made my day!
