In relation to the Hungarian-Japanese jubilee year there will be numerous events presenting the traditional arts and music of the two countries for those interested. As part of the celebrations of the jubilee year Magyar Posta and Japan Post Service Co. Ltd. are making a joint stamp issue.

Japanese-Hungarian relations officially began at the time of the Austro-Hungarian empire in 1869. Relations between the two countries, however, only gained real impetus after the change of political system in Hungary in 1989.

One of the most impressive moments of the varied cultural programme will be realised as a symbol of the friendship between the two countries. Elizabeth Bridge over the Danube will be given new floodlighting designed by Ms Motoko Ishii.

 

In the Hungarian miniature sheet containing six stamps appearing for the occasion of the Hungarian-Japanese jubilee year, the stamps are laid out in the shape of a perforated letter H.

The stamp designs show a few of the national values of the two countries. The Hungarian designs are a flask from the Museum of Ethnography (Budapest), Matyo folk embroidery (Matyo Applied Art Folk Collection, Mezőkövesd) and the floodlit Elizabeth Bridge (based on a photo by József Hajdú and designed by Motoko Ishii).

The Japanese designs are a tea caddy from the Tokyo National Museum, a kimono pattern and Mount Fuji (based on a photo by Yukio Ohyama). On the graphics of the first day cover the design of the frame of the miniature sheet is completed, while the special postmark shows a writing hand, alluding to diplomatic relations.
