Speaking of postcards, do drop by KITTE (keet-tay), which means “postage stamp” in Japanese. Located in front of Tokyo Train Station, the shopping mall incorporates elements of the 1933 Tokyo Central Post Office building. A favourite spot among the locals, the six storey high mall, houses hundreds of restaurants and boutiques, as well as a roof-top garden.

Every set of themed postcard differs, and comes with a short description of the iconic building/designation together with its date of launch on the back. All prefectures carry their own specific prefecture postcard which can’t be bought elsewhere.

The cost of sending a postcard from Japan to Singapore is approximately 70yen (SGD 0.85). You can purchase a stamp at the post office or get one at Lawson, 7-11, FamilyMart or any convenience stores.

Do note that irregular shaped postcards require a 120yen stamp. You can also send your postcard in an envelope at an additional cost of 50yen to prevent any bends or damages.

Postcards are not only affordable, it makes a great souvenir especially if you are travelling on a low budget. What better way to keep track of your travels and spend all your spare change on?
