I was really excited the last week, two of my precious Gotochi postcard has arrived. The first shows the 2014 Gotochi postcard released from the Oita prefecture. And it is one of my favourites.

A lot of my friends in Japan might recognize the fruit - Kabosu. Kabosu is a juicy green citrus fruit produced in most areas of Ōita Prefecture. It is sometimes used instead of vinegar to flavour in dishes such as sashimi and hot-pot. It is produced in most areas of Ōita Prefecture but particularly in Taketa and Usuki. They are available all year round.
Saifukuji Kaisando is a Soto Zen Buddhist temple which was established in 1534. The ceiling of the main hall, Kaisando, is the work of famous illustrator Ishikawa Uncho. Ishikawa Uncho is also known as the “Michelangelo of Echigo”, and was very popular during the Edo period.

Recently a friend of mine send me this Gotochi from Tokushima:

I'm so happy !! Sudachi fruit blooms in the beginning of winter. The flower is the prefectural flower of Tokushima. My friend recently made delicious ice creams using Sudachi, and it looked yummy.

Btw, my friends from Japan, if you are interested in postcards, kindly let me know. Cheers :)

Anyone heard of Gotochi postcards ? They're postcards circulated by postal government of Japan, each region has their own set of cards, that can be bought in that Post Office only. They are usually landmarks, food, or something traditional. The only problem is because they're quite expensive, a lot of Japanese swappers are reluctant to send them abroad written and stamped. My favorite card I've received is from Kyoto.
