10 March 1981 Japan
Japanese Song Series
‘Hana’ composed by Rentaro Taki (1879-1903)
illustration: Seiichi Hayashi (1945 – )
One of the stamps issued Japanese songs popular in musical educations. The illustrator was a commercial animator before becoming an illustrator. His lines and colours are very much suitable for stamp format and on the matured end of ‘kawaii’ kind, for me.
