Nippon Maru - Special Postmark - PhilaNippon 2011

PhilaNippon 2011 - World Philatelic Exhibition was held at Yokohama, Japan during July 28 to August 02, 2011.

Korea Post introduced a special postmark to commemorate the event with the design of Nippon Maru, a four-masted sail training ship. It is now a museum ship docked in front of the Yokohama Maritime Museum.

Many thanks to my swap friend from Korea, Park Choonjong for sending me the cover with this beautiful postmark.
