Kalamazoo, Michigan Featured on Japanese Souvenir Sheet

"Postal stamps adorned with images of Kalamazoo are currently circulating in Japan, as post offices in Kalamazoo's sister city, Numazu, launched the souvenir stamps as a way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the sister city relationship," writes reporter Christina Cantero of the Kalamazoo Gazette on the Michigan Live website.

The stamps are sold at 31 post offices in the Numazu area, and are valid to use anywhere in the country. Each stamp is worth approximately 80 cents according to Cantero.

"The collection includes images of the Kalamazoo Transportation Center, a historic bi-plane at the Air Zoo and the Heritage Guitar Company, as well as a larger stamp featuring the East gateway to Downtown Kalamazoo, and an even larger image of South Haven. according to Cantero.
