And then there is the Shochan Karuta Godzilla (ショウワノート しょうちゃんかるた ゴジラ) published by Showa Note. (Showa Note Co., Ltd. is a stationery manufacturer that mainly manufactures and sells study books for school children and character goods centered on TV characters. The head office is located in Sano, Takaoka City, Toyama Prefecture, and the headquarters is located in Shinkawa, Chuo-ku, Tokyo. It is known as the top brand of study books and it is also strong in character products (karuta, coloring, etc.). It used to manufacture stationery for the general public, but now it specializes in school children.) I found the Showa Note card set several days ago on Buyee Japan. In the past, I would have given little attention to such a Godzilla collectible. But ever since I returned to collecting vintage items, I can’t look away. The illustrations are gorgeous and they give all the feelings of nostalgia from the showa era. The set is complete and in great condition.
