Finland – Finland - Japan Joint Issue
Four Japanese artists have designed stamps of the traditional Finnish Christmas motifs shown on this beautiful First Day Cover sent to me by my friend Ella. The atmosphere differs from the Finnish ones. On the sheet there is Fuji Mountain on the background and it is designed by a Finnish artist Johannes Ekholm. The other designers are Masaki Koide, Sonoko Arai, Ken Kuroi, Goro Sasaki.
