Sakura Japan Stamp Catalog 2023
Stamps that celebrated the 75th anniversary of issuance Recorded until Hobby Week
2021 marked the 150th anniversary of the founding of Japan Post. Many stamps related to the “Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics” and “Japan International Stamp Exhibition” held under strict infection control were issued and attracted attention.
There are also stamps issued on the subject of popular games and anime such as “Pokemon” and “Kimetsu no Yaiba”, which has become a hot topic outside the philately world. The number of new stamps issued last year was 607, which was almost the same as the previous year’s minus 9 (according to the catalog editorial department).
The latest version of “Sakura Japan Stamp Catalog” is recorded until the stamp hobby week, which is the 75th anniversary of the publication this year. Continuing from last year, the layout of the posted illustrations and description contents has been reviewed everywhere to make the layout easier to see.
In addition, some of the commemorative and special stamps in the early postwar period were evaluated and revised. Please also pay attention to the evaluation revision of the “List of Definitive Stamps with Inscription” unique to the “Sakura” catalog.
