Hello & こんにちは (Konnichiwa) from Japan!*
I used to be really active here with username "hanano24". But it was closed due to my long silence :( Anyway I have opened my new account now :)
I am a mom of 4 lovely French bulldogs. I like learning about other cultures, traditions, languages & local dialects, traditional costumes, local music & local dishes, collecting postcards, lovely rubber stamps & lovely stationery, anything related to mailboxes/postal service, Rover Mini, old Fiat 500 & Abarth 595, English & French bulldogs & hippos. I also like music, art, watching sports (baseball, rugby, tennis...), movies & documentaries on TV and lots lots more. I am a BIG tea lover & I love Earl Grey, vanilla, caramel, Lapsang souchong & chai.
*IT IS NOT A MUST but I will be SUPER HAPPY if you could send your card "UN"written & in envelope. I promise I won't use your card for another postcrosser. With long letter from you will make me SUPER x 10000 happy :). If you like writing letters & would like to have a pen friend in Japan please drop me a line*
"I do my best to make other members happy with my cards. I will be happy if you would do the same."
*"NO" touristic/ad cards please. I have been collecting view cards for over 40 years & I think I have really a lot now. Thank you*
*If you send me a written card to me please try MAIL ART :) "
