A postcard showing trekers with the Yatsugatake (八ヶ岳) as background. These volcanic mountains are located in Nagano Prefecture. Thanks Yukina.

This postcard was sent with stamps issued quite sometime ago. They are 5 Yen swam definitive stamp, 5 Yen national park stamp and a 60 Yen Dental Congress stamp. It was sent from Matsudo, Chiba on 4.1.2010. By looking carefully, there are two types of postmark on the postcard. The lighter postmarks are actually for internal mail bearing Kanji word for the city, 松戸, and using Japanese calender, written as 22.1.4. There might be a mistake occurred to use this postmark for international mail.
