Hello! Thank you for taking the time to look at my post. I stumbled upon these postcards when visiting my mother’s house. We believe these belonged to my grandfather but know nothing about them. He was in the marine corps and deployed around Asia during the time of the Korean War ~1950. I am not super confident that information from the post’s title is accurate.  I gathered the information from using Google translate of one of the images.

These postcards are beautiful. I would like to learn more about them to better appreciate the art. I feel properly identifying them is the best place to start.
