Asia-Japan-Hokkaido-Biei This is Hills Town in Biei . Famous for it flowers in summer. It was certainly a wonderful sight and I loved the couple of hours I spend here as I travelled around Hokkaido by car.
|I love the different postmarks that you get in Japan. I posted this in a local post box in the town of Biei. I selected flower stamps as that was the key reason I visited this town.|

Asia-Kyrgyzstan-Bishkek Here you can see some of the highlights of Bishkek capital of Kyrgyzstan. I enjoyed the couple of days there. Possibly the most progressive of the "Stans" and easiest to visit.

|A very helpful Post lady helped me as best she could with the limited stamps available at the Post Office. The outside still reminded me of a typical Russian Post Office.|

Asia-Japan-Hokkaido-Sapporo This is the former Hokkaido Government Office. The surrounding gardens are very nice and inside is a small museum and tourist office.
|These stamps are special Prefecture stamps for Hokkaido. They were not available at the Main Post Office in Sapporo. So I had to find a local stamp dealer and I purchased them . These were the last issued stamps for Hokkaido in 2015.|
