Gotochi Card - Kagoshima

September 14, 2017

I received a Gotochi card from a friend in Japan.  We are both Postcrossers and we started exchanging our prefecture cards a few years ago.

This card shows Shirokuma, a dessert made of shaved ice.  In Kagoshima, it is covered with condensed milk and then fruit is scattered on top.  It is said to resemble a polar bear...Shirokumi translates to "white bear".

You can read more about it if you like here.

Thanks, Annette!  It's a great card.
