Buying stamps while in different prefectures 2014/6/1 08:40
If I want to mail postcards from different prefectures while in Japan does each prefecture sell different stamps in their post offices? I'm hoping to get a variety of stamps. Thank you.

There are prefecture-themed stamps, but many are available nationwide - for example, I can buy stamps depicting Hokkaido in a post office in Tokyo.

There are some postcards sold by post offices that are only available from post offices in that area/prefecture, though.

you can get local 'Keshiin (postmark)' at the postoffice, the date you get stamped on the postal stamp. Go in the post office and ask for 'LOikinen-inn)for fi(fuukei-inn)fat the desk instead of putting your letter in the postbox.
