Ryoma Sakamoto’s postmark on card.
Very rare!
   Ryoma Sakamoto, born in Kamimachi of Kochi city, is one of the most famous samurai in Japan. Till this day people love and honor him and his merchandise are sold everywhere in Kochi Prefecture. In his honor, there is even a post office dedicated to him called ‘’Ryoma Post Office’’ in Kamimachi! It is believed that this remains the only post office to be named after a person in Japan!
