Hioki Stamp Rally Poster

Several cities in the area hold periodic stamp rallies, where you visit various historic or cultural locations and collect rubber stamp images in a stamp book. When you have the ones you want, you mail them in to enter a drawing of some kind. Hioki City is halfway between Kagoshima and Ijuin, which is significant when you do the 12 mile Myouenji temple walk in October. There's a strong Samurai history in the region, and Hioki likes to promote that. The rally is to visit 6 of the major shrines in the area, but the prize is only a chance to win 2,500 yen ($22.50 USD). I just scanned the poster for the blog here because of the manga artwork.
