In 1870, Baron Maeshima, visited London to learn the operation of the British postal system, and established a post office in Japan in 1871. The first stamps were issued in April 1871, is set to four, covering a wide range of postage, a complex two-color design consists of two dragons facing the center, where the value of the characters printed in black. Cuts were the Mon, who had already been replaced between the yen, the same basic structure of the yen-denominated, was released in 1872, but the same was soon replaced with four new models in the Imperial Crest.
The new models, including the designation of Latin letters, a trend that has generally followed since, and the chrysanthemum, which has been imprinted on each of Japan until 1947, instead of the true face of the emperor.
