2016 Slovenia Lighthouse Stamp

On 27 May 2016 Slovenia issued the third in a series entitled “Slovene Ships”. This stamp shows the ship Piran entering Piran harbor with the red Piran West Mole light just visible to the right of the ship’s bow. This appears to be the only stamp issued by Slovenia showing a lighthouse.

2016 Japan Lighthouse Stamps

On 26 Apr 2016, Japan issued a sheet of 10 stamps to commemorate the G7 Ise-Shima Summit. One of the stamps shows Daio Saki Lighthouse. This aid to navigation was built after a Japanese naval vessel wrecked on a nearby shoal.

The second sheet was issued on 8 July 2016 in the “World Heritage” series. No lighthouses are shown on any of the 10 stamps but Hizen Ha Shima Lighthouse is visible (marked with the red arrow) at the upper part of the sheet. This lighthouse is located on a small island about 15 miles southwest of Nagasaki.
