The Collection

This is the complete collection of all 9 sets of 47. If a card is a link, I have written a post about it, and you can click on it to read more about the card and to see an example of it, along with pictures. The prefectures are organized (mostly) from top of the country to bottom according to area, which if you’re unfamiliar about Japanese Geography you can read more about here. Also, please excuse the mishmash of translation styles… I just put whatever I thought would be easiest for people to understand and not necessarily a direct translation of the Japanese! (I recommend ctrl+f if you can… it’s a long list!)

  1. It was not easy for me to collect all Gotochi Cards from 2009 but I HAVE ALL, even I live 10 000 kilometers from Japan! I read your information about Gotochi Cards and I must tell to you – you are much better as Japanese Post. Thank you! Mari

  2. Hi, I’m using the translations you provide on this page for my own website where I talk about gotochi, and I think I’ve come across a mistake regarding Hyogo pref.

    I have a doubt about this one : Akashi Pottery (明石焼(玉子焼))
    Since we’re talking about food, pottery seems a bit weird…
