Description: The set seems to have been produced by a collectors group in the Kanto, on the occasion of a group trip to the Kansai area in 1933. Another edition of the set was printed in colour on silver-speckled paper. The title on the envelope which accompanied the colour-printed edition reads "関西訪問記念票" ("Labels in Commemoration of a Trip to Kansai").

It seems that two famous confection shops are featured: 入船堂(Iribune-do) and 梅園 (Ume-zono), but this is not completely clear...

When the characters circled at the top of each print are read together, the words "In Welcome of a Visit to Kansai in Showa 8 (1933)" (昭和八年関西訪問歡迎御禮) are spelled out.

Please visit our Collection page where you can see our own preserved copy of this entire set at high-resolution.

The displayed dimension is each print size.

It comes with an envelope with a cover sheet on top. There are a few holes on top of the envelope but the prints inside are in very good condition.
