Monday 29 March

Lost but not forgotten

Behind Nagano’s great Zenkoji temple, and off the tourist paths, a ‘Memorial to Undelivered Mail’:

This memorial is dedicated to lost letters. There are approximately 1.8 million pieces of undeliverable mail in Japan annually. Postal workers dedicated this monument in 1971 for the relief of mail’s spirit.
