Blue Mailbox


Blue Mailbox

In Japan, mailboxes are red. Usual they don't come in other colours.

So, when I saw this blue mailbox in Lyon, France, it caught my eyes.

I somehow believed all the mailboxes should be red. When I am in Tokyo looking for a mailbox, my eyes are looking for something red.

I am curious to know if French people are surprised to see red mailboxes in Tokyo?

By the way, I saw this blue mailbox at a museum. So, I am not sure if it is still used, or it is displayed as part of their collection.

P.S. I know that UK has red mailboxes. One thing Japan and UK have in common.
