Hey Mister Postman

Today's language survival skill was writing, addressing, and buying stamps for postcards in Japanese. Items sent within Japan must use their addressing system which is a combination of kanji, hiragana and katakana written top to bottom from right to left. It only took and hour to prepare that one. The second one was adressed to a recipient in the US. It's 50¥ for domestic postcards and 70¥ for international. I think I'll stick to email cause it's cheaper.
