Japan: Year of the Rooster

The Rooster is the tenth sign of the twelve year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac (and similar zodiacal systems) related to the Chinese calendar.  The name is also translated into English as Chicken. Rooster is the only bird included in the Chinese zodiac. However, the Chinese term is more generic, as it applies to barnyard fowl of either sex. The Rooster is strong and athletic. Great at sports. There are many football Athletes that became pro that are roosters. It is also said that the rooster is also incredibly smart.

I'm happy to receive this nice cover from Yokohama with minisheet stamp and beautiful postmark.
