We have an old photo and postcard album which contains kanji.
Here are two image scans. Can you please tell us what this person has written?

This is a postcard, we are not sure, may be map of radio stations or shrines.
Please advise.

Its a post card from the city of Abashiri, in northern Hokkaido, from 1935. The postcard is addressed to Atsushi Akamatsu (other possible readings for Atsushi). I can't quite make out the substance of the handwriting on the back of the post card. It is talking about something in Abashiri. The post card itself is a promotional post card. The building is a hotel, and the background shows travel routes to Abashiri.

Perhaps that's just me, but whenever i hear or read "Abashiri" the first thing that comes to my mind is the (in)famous non-profit "hotel" where guests stay long-term free of charge. That and (the late) Ken-san's face.

Thank you very much for information detailing the postcard.

Thank you, Majestic: The first two inscriptions are not from the front of the postcard, they are from the first 2 pages of the photo album; quite possibly the owner of the album.

Hello - the inscription meaning doesn't change; it just means the photo album was presented to Atsushi Akamatsu. Possibly by a friend, acquaintance of his with the surname of Kan (or another possible reading is "Suga"). I guess the photo album is a memento of the time Akamatsu spent in Abashiri.

The last part of the second page says "... departed at 6 pm".
