Postscript! Japan's Stamp-Show

Everyone in the world, have you ever heard of the Japanese Stamp-Show?
The World Stamp Festival Stamp-Show is an event to enjoy and get to know stamps from all over the world, and the first one was held in 1977.
Since then, the event has been held every April.
This year, the event will be held in Asakusa, Tokyo from April 21 to 23.

A variety of events, including a special commemorative small stamp imprinting service in tie-up with Japan Post, talk shows by stamp designers, and workshops on stamps and postcards, are held for the enjoyment of visitors, along with elaborate exhibitions of stamps each time .

I love to see visitors having a good time, so I continue to volunteer as a staff member here every year.

This year, I have big news!
We, the Nadeshiko Stamp Club, have been given permission to hold the Postcrossing Meetup at this event site.
This is a miracle since the beginning of the Stamp Show!
It is also a chance to spread Postcrossing to those who don’t know about it.

We would like to thank the Stamp-Show Secretariat (Japan Post Association) for giving us this very happy opportunity, and we look forward to enjoying the meetup.

Due to the short time of the event, only one signature card per participant will be allowed.
We will prepare one official Stamp-Show postcard and one stamp for each participant.

This year there is also a tie-up with Choshi Dentetsu Railway, which will have a headmark on the train and a Stamp-Show ad inside the train.

Stamp-Show also introduced our Meetup to the public.

The stamp show closed on April 23rd.
This year7600 people attended the three-day event.
It was a big event that everyone enjoyed being released from the coronavirus.

We, Nadeshiko Kitte Club(Kitte means a postage stamp in Japanese), held a meetup there.
I will show you a little bit of the venue.
This bear is the official character of the Japan Post Office named “Posukuma” .
The another postcard is a Nadeshiko Kitte club original card.
We cut and paste the official logo and the date to make a meetup card and it’s done!
We enjoyed signing autographs by members, exchanging cards, and played rock-paper-scissors.
All the signed cards are sent to the postcrossers in the world.
I hope that the cards will be received safely.

In another space, a talk show was held by two designers who designed postmarks.
The event attracted a large crowd. When I took a peek, the postmark of Nadeshiko Kitte club exhibition was introduced by the designer.

I hope those who could not attend the event enjoy reading this article.
The stamp show will take place next April.
If you have the opportunity, please attend the stamp show and have fun!
