Mount Fuji on Stamps 2: 1935~1962 (partial)

MOUNT-FUJI-COVER-2

There is a very interesting way to know more about Mount Fuji in Shizuoka Prefecture (and also Yamanashi Prefecture) by collecting or studying stamps which were issued on this subject inside Japan (there are of course more in the rest of the world)!

There are certainly more than one may think first as the Japanese Post Office printed regular not only commemorative stamps but also regular stamps well before WWII!

Here is an account spanning up to 2004 (2nd installment)
Past that year, I’m sure it will be a lot easier to investigate!
