20101001 - Japan

** NEW FIND from 2010 **
Hello friends:
Do you remember this minisheet from Japan 2010? 
This issue was already posted.  But  I only listed the last stamp of the sequence showing "E Saki" lighthouse (circle), as a lighthouse stamp.
This morning, George from Canada, send to me a mail, informing about another lighthouse in this minisheet.  And yes,  there is another lighthouse. Look at the stamp beside the E saki.

This stamp show the "Naruto Whirlpools",   under the bridge between Naruto and Awaji Island  (Onaruto Bridge). That white tower on the hill, next to the bridge is Mago Saki Lighthouse.

Mago Saki Lighthouse  -  ALL  M 5551.5

Thank you very much George Louit (Argentinian living in Canada), for this new discovery.
