As I mentioned in a post last January, 年賀状 (New Years Postcards) are very popular in Japan.
These postcards have a six-digit number printed on the back in the lower right-hand corner, and every January the Japanese post office draws random numbers for a Postcard lottery in which people with postcards that have a winning number receive a prize.

Well, Japan also has a tradition of sending postcards to friends and family in the summer. This tradition isn’t practiced anywhere near to the extent that the New Years postcards are…but there’s also a Post Office Lottery for these cards as well.

Here are the winning numbers for the Japanese Post Card lottery for Summer 2009:

For the “A” Prize (¥200,000):
▲ 035890
▲ 723606
▲ 817512

For “B” Prize (a sheet of postage stamps):
▲ any number with the last three digits 352

The last prize (¥10,000):
▲ any number with the last four digits 4452

Did you receive any Summer Postcards this year?
Do any have a winning lottery number on them?

None of the postcards we received this summer won.
