Sendai, Japan

Another official card, this time from Japan
 JP-94895

On the back, there is a text written in Japanese, pero yo comprendo NADA!
But well, as precious google says, Sendai is the capital city of the Myagi Prefecture  and the largest city in the Tōhoku (northeast) region.
Ive always found that word "prefecture" interesting...and that Japanese division in general.


and a cute Japanese stamp from the year i-have-no-idea-which-one....

Took me ages, but I finally found it. It's from the October 2001 (Heisei 13) issue of Furusato ("hometown") stamps. This particular one shows the Kamakura festival of Akita Prefecture, where they carve snow huts ("kamakura") and children play in them. The writing at the bottom right of the stamp (bottom left of the scan) says かまくら・秋田県 (Kamakura - Akita Prefecture).

If you want to scan the Japanese text I can probably decipher that for you as well. ^_^
