Stamp it

For many years, I’ve been loving stamps. I’ve got a huge stamp collection back at home in Switzerland. Stamps I bought, stamps I made and stamps I received as a present. But I also collect imprints of stamps and of course Japan is the country where I got and am still getting most of those.

Kind of every (or every major) JR train station has a station stamp – you only have to find it or ask for it. Recently, probably in preparation for Tokyo 2020 Olympics, they even published a modernised set. Also temple and shrines have stamps. And many other places. So, I try to always carry a little notebook with me in which I can stamp. Here, you can see some of my Japanese stamps. To be expanded from time to time.
