These days most of postboxes are rectangular. Old pillar type looks lovely, doesn't it ?

How intriguing! Fortunately it says 'Post', or I would have thought it was a hydrant ... ;-)

@franz: Oh, do you read Japanese 漢字 Kanji characters ? Japanese Kanji characters at the right say "watch out for fire" ! I think a hydrant or something like that is in that box.

Nice photo. I wonder where the post is taken out. Lifting the heavy top?

@Blikvanger: I don't think so. Maybe square part below is a door to take out.
