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.
