[Swap & Penpal] Offer/Request topic


I’m Katharina, 36 years old and I live in a small village in beautiful Lower Bavaria/Germany.
I describe my character as very quiet and introverted. Postcrossing makes me feel very comfortable and it helps me to reach out to new people, whether it’s through pen pals or direct swaps. I would very much like to find direct swaps, postcard friends/pen pals from Japan to learn Japanese.
I used to love watching Mila Superstar on TV, because I was also playing volleyball at the time.
I also like to watch Studio Ghibli films (especially Princess Mononoke and Totoro).

I love O-Mochi ice cream, green tea and cherry blossom tea.

For my postcards to Japan I already can write こんにちは. I try to be able to write a few sentences in Japanese on the postcards with the help of a translator. If mistakes should creep in, then I ask for forgiveness in advance.

Now I’m looking for pen pals/postcard friends/swaps from Japan so that I can seriously learn Japanese. Maybe it will even work out that I can visit Japan, because it is a dream of mine that I would like to fulfill :slight_smile:

Kind regards,






今、私は真剣に日本語を学ぶことができるように、日本からのペンフレンド/はがきの友達/スワップを探しています。多分それは私が日本を訪問することができることさえうまくいくでしょう、なぜならそれは私が実現したい私の夢だからです :slight_smile:




(You don’t have to send me a blank postcard. You can play it at will on the back.)

Looking for postcards from (smaller) japanese islands

Hi! I’m Anna, currently living in Germany.
I am collecting postcards sent from islands, and Japan is especially close to my heart - I have spent there a couple of months and was fascinated by all the regions I have visited.

I already have postcards from the main islands - Hokkaido, Honshu, Kyushu and Shikoku
and some smaller ones: Amami, Aoshima, Awaji, Hashima, Ishigaki, Miyajima, Okinawa, Tokunoshima, Yakushima and Yoronjima,
but there are of course many more islands in Japan to discover!

You can find my collection here: Every Island Project

If you would like to help me, please message me here, or at letters.from.islands@gmail.com :slight_smile: (of course I’d be happy to send you a card back from Germany or my travels!)

Hi @Eliza99

Unfortunately, we cannot send postal mails at all from Japan to Russia, not even via ship / surface mail…

Very sorry about it. I hope it resumes soon!

Hello, I’m from China, and I’m very interested in Japanese culture! Would anyone like to exchange letters with me? I will put stamps, handwritten letters, postcards, small handicrafts, photos, etc. in the envelope I send, and you don’t have to send me a letter right now. I will send it when my address is stable. I hope to receive a letter with similar content.
