Niigata - Toki Card

January 2015

I was in Niigata earlier this year and I bought one of these shaped cards.  I haven't decided if I want to send it or keep it!  It is rather cute though.


The bird is the Toki, or crested ibis.  The Japanese ones all died sadly, but they have been re-introducing them on Sado Island with limited success.  The card also shows produce for which  Niigata is famous.

There were quite a few of these cards, with different designs, but unfortunately my budget is quite limited at times.  I wish I could get more sometime.
