Mount Fuji was one of the latest UNESCO World Heritage List inductions, being added to the list last year in 2013. But it was only recently that I received a card of this Japanese landmark:


This first card shows a snow-capped Mount Fuji framed by ornamental cherry blossoms in spring. This card comes from Wakka in Fukushima. The back of the postcard saws that the view is looking across Kawaguchiko Lake.

Nana sent me an envelope full of nice cards, including another UNESCO site, Kiyomizu Temple, one of the Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto.UNESCO-kyoto-cherry

This card also features the lovely Japanese cherry blossoms.

Nana included an extra card of Matsuura City:
