year of the rabbit

One of my favorite series from Japan Post comes out each New Year's and features some of the many ways, old and new, to write the zodiac animal for the year. It's already 2011 in Japan so here's to the Year of the Rabbit! Shinnen akemashite omedetou gozaimasu! Rabbit is usagi in Japanese and these elegant stamps all say, in one way or another, just that. Many thanks to my friend Keiko in Tokyo, who used these stamps on a packet she sent.
