Gotochi Card - Miyagi Prefecture

September, 2014

I was in Miyagi Prefecture last month and was able to buy a copy of this year's Gotochi Card.  I'm a little surprised that this is on a Miyagi card, since I thought it would be on a Yamagata-ken card!

This is the volcanic lake on the top of Mt. Zao, a mountain that straddles the line between Yamagata and Miyagi. I have been up to the top of this mountain and have seen the lake, which is quite beautiful.

As you can see from this postcard which I sent recently, the colour is quite unusual.  

I do have a spare copy of the Gotochi, so you never know who is going to end up with it!

The colour of that lake is wonderful.
