Japan post will organized a World Stamp Exhibitions called “PHILANIPPON 2011” in August 2011. In Japan, World Stamp Exhibition takes place once every ten years, held in 1971, 1981, 1991, and 2001, and will also be held in 2011. World Stamp Exhibitions are held all over the world every year with aims to develop philately, opening world-renowned stamp collections to the public, and promote stamps of the member countries of the Federation Internationale de Philatelie” (FIP).
The theme of PHILANIPPON ‘11 is “Stamps Link the World”. It will be a rare opportunity for the first time in 10 years in Japan to promote philatelic culture in Japan, publicize Japanese stamps overseas, and nurture cultural exchange and international friendship through stamp collection.
With tie-ups with various companies, we hope both many collectors and ordinary citizens gather, making it a good opportunity to find significance of philatelic culture and create a bright future.
