#573 Japan 12/06/26

Thank you, Miyoshi, for sending this nice cover from Japan! It was posted on June 26 in Tokyo at Asukayama Station (飛鳥山駅) and arrived on July 2, 2012 (Heisei 24).

The left stamp is part of the set “Modern Japanese Art”, which was issued on May 30, 1979. It depicts the painting “Merciful Mother Goddess” by Kanō Hōgai (狩野芳崖; 1828-1888).

The right stamp commemorates the Japanese dragonfly Boninthemis insularis. It is part of the 1977 insects set and was issued on September 14, 1977.
