Yabuki, Japan

I've never seen a postmark like this from Japan although I'm hardly an expert on Japan Post postmarks. It appears to be rolled on. The stamps on this cover from the town of Yabuki in Fukushima Prefecture feature paintings by Japanese painter Torii Kotondo. The stamps were issued in 1988 as part of the "Philatelic Week" series: a long running series that promotes Japanese art and culture.
