in the middle of the spread is a tip-in of a bank envelope.
i did get some inquiring looks as i went from atm to atm collecting different envelopes.
go on about your business, there's nothing for you here.
inside the tip-in is a red stamp for kanazawa train station on a receipt.
there are stamps stationed all over japan at interesting places.
