Where to post a letter
So you have a stamp and a letter, now what?
Like many things in Japan, they are designed to be as simple as possible, but this does not work.
In brief, you have local and non-local mail in red and blue respectively, simple right? Now look closer at the picture.
The red section is for local letters and postcards, yes they are still a thing. The pager has only just become obsolete here. Anyways, if you wanted to send a local non-standard sized letter, firstly it wouldn’t fit in this specific box and secondly it’ll be in the blue section along with international mail.
Post boxes are handy things but just go to a post office, it’ll make life much simpler.
I hope you enjoyed reading and are well (unlike myself this past week),and as always happy exploring!
