Japan postage stamps all use the same font for the word NIPPON (日本郵便). I could not find a font that matches the second symbol on stamps. Tried the main Identification sites: WhatTheFont Identifont WhatFontIs Fontspring Matcherator FontID Reddit /r/identifythisfont Find a Font Fonts in Use on Flickr Graphic Design SE, this very site. Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.5+ Font Match FontMatch Find my Font

  • Yes the symbols that define JAPAN, especially the second "本" does not match the common Japanese fonts

  • The samples I could find in Duck Duck Go were not identical, but most of them had the "ni hon" glyphs in a style which resembles or imitates ancient carving writing style, where you could not use a brush to write. There's probably a name for it but I'm not familiar with the terminology. Duck Duck Going for "woodblock" or "carving" brings up samples which imitate conventional brush strokes, often quite stunningly so.

    WW2 happened before the internet. Be aware this may not be a font in the modern definition of something you can google and download.
