(Small Notes for the issue)
In April 1908, Kasato-maru left Kobe with the first Japanese emigrants on board, to Brazil. Both the Japanese and Brazilian government had designated this centenary of the Japanese emigration as "Japan-Brazil Friendship Year". These stamps depict representative places, including World Heritage sites, etc., of Brazil.
