Does anyone know how to send a letter to Japan? We had an exchange student with us a few months ago and she wrote us a lovely letter so want to respond in kind. The return address she wrote is  (n=number) n-n nn-Chome n-jyo Hiragishi Toyohira-ku Sapporo shi, Hakkaido nnn-nnnn Japan


And - do I write our return address on the front or back of the envelope?

Yep that is correct, would probably break down like:




n-n nn-Chome n-jyo


Hiragishi Toyohira-ku




Hakkaido nnn-nnnn






Interestingly if you were writing in japanese characters, it goes the other way:




Hakkaido nnn-nnnn




Hiragishi Toyohira-ku


n-n nn-Chome n-jyo




Either back or front for the return address - doesn't matter
