Post cards

I love post cards.  I’ve been purchasing them everywhere we go.  Since I love them so much, part of me hates sending them because then I no longer have the cards.

Well, I decided to scan a few so I could save them forever and share them with everyone digitally.

For my friend Andi.

The woodblock-print envelope for a selection of beautiful post cards from the Buddhist temple Byodo-in located in Kyoto.

And the postcards it contained that I made into a desktop background, wallpaper, whatever you want to call it. (1280×800, click to enlarge if you’d like to use it)

Most post offices in Japan sell this cute little card.  It’s a traditional post box with the city’s name in kanji.

This isn’t actually a post card; it’s the top of a sheet of stamps in similar design.

Fireworks festivals are very popular in the summer and my town is no exception.  Oyama has a particularly large fireworks display over the river (see my videos here and the original blog post, 20,000+ Fireworks), and of course the supermarket was selling these cute Hello Kitty post cards.

New Year’s cards!  Are you feeling left out, thinking, “I didn’t get one of these.”  Well, neither did anyone else because we never got around to sending a single card.  We’ve got about 20 of them if anyone’s interested…

    I feel like you should still send the New Year’s ones out. So everyone gets them in November, almost a year late. Like greetings from the past.
