    From 1936 Japan started issuing stamps,commemorating the nations
    national parks.The first series ran till 1956,a second series from 1962 till 1974.

    Commemorating the Mt.Fuji (Fujiyama) - Hakone N.P.,this first set of the first series was issued on July 10th,1936.
    The 6 and the 10 Sen had the lowest print-quantity of 250.000 each.
    This set is the only one of the first series,what was not accompanied by
    a souvenir sheet.
    The set was sold only at the post-offices in the national park (!)

    The system does no show the inner pages,what describe the issue, here.
    To see them,you have to open Japan 272A.
    Buying s.s. accompanied by folders will cost an additional premium.
    Expect dealers being reluctant to buy s.s. without folders.
    In all folders of gummed s.s. there was a glassin-type leave to protect
    the gum.
