us japan joint issueIn 2015, the U.S. Postal Service and Japan Post jointly issue Gifts of Friendship, a pane of 12 Forever stamps featuring beautiful images of flowering dogwood and flowering cherry trees. The pane features four new stamp designs, two created by the Postal Service™ and two by Japan Post. The first U.S. stamp showcases the Lincoln Memorial with cherry trees in the foreground, while the second stamp features the U.S. Capitol Building surrounded by pink and white dogwood trees. The Japanese-designed stamps each feature a prominent building in Tokyo: the National Diet Building framed with cherry blossoms and the clock tower outside the Diet Building behind a foreground of white dogwood flowers.
