Each postcard has an illustration of a melancholy young Japanese woman dressed in a kimono, printed around her are the words and musical score of a folk song from one of 5 Japanese regions - Akita, Kusatsu, Yoneyama, Kagoshima and Yamanaka. On receipt the soldier would think fondly of home and maybe sing the folk song to or with his companions at the front. (When referring to this item please quote stockid 170402).
