2nd Card from Japan

Today I got this beautiful card with a large cruise ship and another small vessel with two ship stamps on the back of the card from Ms. Yukari, Japan through postcrossing.

Thank you, Ms. Yukari for sending such a nice card with beautiful stamps.

In the smaller vessel one can notice painted image of an Octopus. Right from olden days, it is believed that these type of drawings and marks such as dragons, snakes, etc., in the boats and ships will protect the crew from sea monsters, ghosts, etc.,
