About the site


This blog is about postcards, covers and stamps received. I also included some of my favorite stamps in my collection.

Feel free to contact me at jpstampcollector@gmail.com if you want a cover or mint stamps exchange.
I am interested in birds / marine life / commercial aviation / military / religious theme (like Popes, Saints and Churches) / famous historical events from your country / Joint stamp issues with Philippines. Year of the Rabbit (2011), Year of the Tiger (2010), Year of the Dragon (2012)

For covers, please limit envelope size to 220mm x 140mm

My birthday is on December 31. I'd really appreciate if you can send me a letter on that day with a birthday greeting.

I am currently working in an IT company, but I can still manage to find some time to go to post office to send postcards and letters.
I like commercial aviation and I collect die cast airplanes. I also love to do travel photography and interact with different people and learn their culture.

Feel free to browse this blog site and I would appreciate if you leave any comments / remarks.

#3 Cover and Postcard - Japan (2010-09-20)

I received a letter with postcard inside via Postcrossing. Thanks Chiaki!
The cover has 2 stamps, the first is a definitive stamp and the second one is a special release stamp.

The first stamp is a part of "The Nature of Japan" definitive series released last 1997. This stamp depicts Koao-hanamuguri (flower beetle) and Kantou dandelion.
The second stamp is very interesting, it is a special release with the theme "Protecting the Arctic polar Antarctica" released last June 30, 2009. This is the first release of hologram stamps in Japan.

It is part of a miniature sheet of 4 stamps.


Inside the letter is a cute postcard.
