Will Miss #76 - custom "cards"

When I receive a card for any type of occasion in Japan, at least half of the time (if not more), the card is something custom or customized. It's very common, for instance, for Japanese people to write on a fan or to write on a large square of cardboard. Often, doodles or drawings will be added to a conventional greeting card or the aforementioned cardboard squares.

These cards feel more special and thoughtful than the standard Western greeting card, and I'll miss receiving them.
