This stamp was issued by Japan to publicize the Antarctic expedition
of 1965. The design elements include a map of the continent of
Antarctica with latitude and longitude and a dashed line representing
the Antarctic Circle at 66º 33′ 38″,
a representation of the Aurora Australis, and a silhouette of the
observation ship, "Fuji." The map has a dark dot (just to the right of
the top of the continent) which marks the location of "Syowa." the
Japanese bases established in 1957.
