Japan Post Boxes

Filed under: Domestic, Hokkaido, Trips — myyearinjapan @ 3:14 am

Japanese Post Boxes are usually square, red boxes. But, sometimes you can find more interesting post boxes. Several decades ago, most Japanese post boxes were round (丸型ポスト). Japanese post box enthusiasts deplore the loss of these boxes and go around taking pictures of the ones that still exist to preserve the memory. As I explored Hokkaido, these round style post boxes seemed much more common than they are in Tokyo. Here are some of the Post Boxes I saw in Hokkaido:

A funky modern style post box in Sapporo
