The stamps were created and issued by the Japan Post Network Chugoku Regional Office and are available online, as well as in the regions of West Japan where Mazda runs production sites: Hiroshima prefecture and Hofu city in Yamaguchi prefecture.
The limited edition stamps feature images of iconic Mazda vehicles from the automaker’s 90-year history, ranging from the 1950 Mazda-Go three-wheeled truck to the all-new Mazda Premacy (Mazda5), also including the Mazda Shinari concept.
“Mazda is grateful and proud that the Japan Post Chugoku Regional Office has decided to issue these special stamps to celebrate Mazda’s history,” said Yuji Harada, director and senior managing executive officer at Mazda Motor Corporation. “The stamps are a welcome reminder of the strong support and affection that Mazda enjoys in its local communities, especially as most of the planning and design of the stamps was carried out by staff at post offices near Mazda facilities. Going forward, Mazda is determined to continue building vehicles that look inviting to drive, are fun to drive, and provide customers with pleasure. We hope to inspire more people to commemorate our great cars.”
Online sales of the limited edition stamps will debut on Friday, November 5 2010, on the Japan Post Network’s website. You can browse the site, which is only available in Japanese, by following this link.
