same picture angle


1 October 1977 Japan
design: Yoshiomi Higashikadoi

Celebrating the 32nd National Athletic Meet in Aomori – so, behind the racer there are Mount Iwaki and Iwaki River.  It seems Japanese stamp designers really like this angle to depict a bicycle racers – same as 3rd National Athletic Meet and Tokyo Olympic stamp.

This stamp is listed on eBay!
