For this Blog Party Link-Up, the theme is "Fall Colours".
I have decided to show a couple of the themed mailbox Gotochi cards from Japan. Every season a new card appears with new artwork. I always look forward to these interesting little cards.
Japan is always very proud of having four distinct seasons!
This is the card from 2015 which features a squirrel with an acorn. It's rather sweet!
This is the Autumn card for 2016, which to be completely honest, I haven't bought yet. (Edited October 14, 2016 to say, I have this card now!) The animal on the front of this is a tanuki, or raccoon dog. Tanuki are quite prominent in Japanese folklore. You can read more about them on Wikipedia.
