This website is a work-in-progress extension of a project that mapped a set of postcards came as a ‘special gift’ (付録) with the September 1932 edition of the magazine Shufu no Tomo (主婦の友, 1916-2018). This map can also be accessed by clicking on the “Map” tab on the top of this page. I am currently attempting to visit the 66 locations that were photographed in the set. Each blog post will include the original postcard image, title, number, as well as a new photo taken in the winter of 2019-2020. Please click on the “Image Comparisons” tab on the top of this page to see the list of locations that are being compared.
