Japanese Pop Culture in a Stamp

Anime X Stamps provides a look back at the history of Japanese anime, a cultural phenomenon which traces its roots back to the 1917 animated film, The Dull Sword by Junichi Kouchi. This pedigree makes 2017 the 100th anniversary of Japanese anime.

At Anime X Stamps, in addition to beautiful anime art miniaturised on beautifully designed stamps, information panels provide interesting facts about different anime series.
