Japanese Travel Posters
We have acquired a small lot of posters from Japan promoting
travel to various parts of the country. Despite its relatively
small size Japan's many regions have distinctive architecture,
crafts, cuisine, attractions and cultural events. Intercity travel
by train is especially convenient and pleasant. Smaller airlines
do provide service within the country as well. We believe the
posters we are offering date from the 1950's. We have imperfect
translations of the text but we believe these are most interesting
for their colorful and well designed graphics.
