Postcards to Commemorate Naval Battle
Our prefecture's Takeshima (or Riyankorudo Gan = Liancourt rocks) has suddenly become famous because of the Battle of the Sea of Japan, which was a big naval battle worthy of commemoration. Supported by the enthusiasm of Governor Matsunaga, new postcards for overseas are planned and will show the Sea of Japan with Shimane prefecture, Shimane prefecture with Oki islands, and Oki islands with Takeshima. It is an interesting idea. They will be good for sending to the heroes of the naval battle.
