Japan: Peace Tower in Miyazaki

On Tuesday I got two postcards: one from Japan and one from Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The card from Japan shows the Peace Tower in Miyazaki's Heiwadei Koen Park. The Peace Tower was built in 1940. Actually built to glorify Imperial Japan’s occupation of Asian nations, it was later rededicated as the city’s Peace Tower and is today quite controversial.

With a nice stamp:
50 years diplomatic relations with Singapore (from set of ten) (issued 29-11-2016)
It is a joint issue with Singapore.
with First Day Special Postmark

Thank You very much Keiko!
