“Do you send postcards to yourself?” asked from Gion post office

Kyoto Gion Post Office, sending postcards (including to myself)

Do you ever send postcards to yourself? It’s a really good idea.

You can remember bits and pieces of your travel along the way and when you return, you have memories ready made for archiving in a scrapbook, shoebox or other collage.

Anyhow, i do. In this instance from Kyoto Gion Post Office, sending several cards – including to myself – as well as buying a few commemorative postcards and special stamps.

Also in this case, ensuring the franking cancellation from this historic location was a curiosity.

{Though thought twas a missed opportunity to feature a *classic tower* style postbox on site instead of the *newer box* style.}
