Hello,

I’m living in Switzerland and would like to trade postcards with Japanese people, as I’m currently learning Japanese, I’m really interested in this country and I’ll also use this opportunity to force myself to practice kanji, as for now I can speak a bit, but can’t write at all as I’m too lazy to practice seriously writing.
So even though I’ll do my best to write to you in Japanese, as I’m using a translator for most of it, forgive me if there are some mistakes.

こんにちは。

スイスに住んでいるのですが、日本の方と絵葉書を交換したいと思います。現在日本語を勉強しているので、この国にとても興味がありますし、この機会に漢字を強制的に練習しようと思います。今のところ、少し話すことはできますが、真剣に書く練習をするのが面倒なので、全く書けません。
だから、頑張って日本語で書こうと思っても、ほとんど翻訳機を使っているので、多少の間違いがあっても許してください。

Hi everyone
I am Maciej from Poland, currently living in Germany. I am looking for someone who would like to exchange a package (some sweets, tea, something interesting, or whatever) I offer the same set and there can be only German products, Polish from my homeland or a mixed package) I know that such shipping is quite expensive so I propose a package up to 2 kg and some contractual price limit, e.g. up to € 20 + shipping cost. I think it could be an interesting experience and maybe some interesting new contact or Instagram follower. Of course, the post is as serious as possible and I hope for a response from determined and responsible people.

Dear @KattyVrn right now the postal connection JP → RU is closed, so Japanese users sadly wouldn’t be able to swap with you (check postal monitor)

Postal Monitor tells the air mail route from Japan.
Sadly surface mail is also suspended this year.

I have no confidence whether it will work, but maybe “via Belarus”, “via Hong Kong” may help deliver postcards.


By the way, it is really sad that mail JP-RU has been suspended for such long time.
I wish it can be restored quickly.

Thank you very much. I did not know. I saw that you can send mail to Japan from Russia. So now it is impossible to send from Japan to Russia.:cry:

Hello there!

Anyone wants to receive Japanese-themed (mostly touristic view cards) postcards sent from UK? I am an almost 36-year-old Japanese female currently living in UK and I have a massive pile of those cards with me, which I had stocked up when I was still in Japan.
Would be nice if I could receive a card from you as well in return, as the postage here is rather expensive.
Please DM me if you are interested, so that we cound arrange a swap!

I’m also looking for a small number of new penpals,

Thank you and Happy Postcrossing!
