Shizuoka, Japan

From Shizuoka, Japan. The postmark on the right is one of several city landmark postmarks available in Shizuoka. This one is of an Exhibition Hall in Oguro, with Mount Fuji in the background (I'm pretty sure you can't actually see Mount Fuji from the entrance to the hall). The New Year stamps on this cover are lottery stamps. In addition to the usually New Year stamps issued each year, special stamps are also produced with lottery numbers on them. Early in the year, Japan Post draws numbers and awards prizes for lottery winners.
