My 100th Postcard!

Tokyo Gotochi Postcard
21 May 2013 | From Andrey of Japan

This is the postcard Andrey promised me when I sent him his 100th postcard. Turned out, this Gotochi postcard from him is also my 100th postcard! 

"Gotochi cards are designed and released by the Japanese Postal System, and each one of them represents a place in Japan - hence the name 'gotochi', which means 'local'. They showcase Japanese symbols (which might be local dishes, costumes, monuments, landscapes, etc.) on a national and regional level, in a brightly coloured and fun cartoon."
