JAPAN - 2016 (II)

New Issue

Cover of Booklet

Inside Booklet

Full serie of 47 stamps

The serie of stamps "60 Anniversary of Enforcement of the Local Autonomy Law" was a rich source of material for us.  A lot of the minisheets and thanks to the designer Satoshi Maruyama, contains lighthouses.  The serie saw the end last June 07 with the release of the 47th minisheet, dedicated to the TOKIO Prefecture.  
At the same time and as a resume of the serie, Japan Post issued this Booklet of 47 stamps. One stamp for each of the 47 Prefectures of that country.  The stamps are not repetitions of the originals, but the images were taked from the background of the minisheets.
One stamp in particular is relevant for us, and is located in the position 14.
