How would it feel like to get a letter from under the sea?

A postmaster in Japan came up with a novel idea to attract tourists to his village in the Nishimuro District of Japan – and it worked. Toshihiko Matsumoto conceived the idea of an underwater mailbox which is very popular with tourists. So far, 38,000 postcards have been mailed through the underwater post box.

Every day, dive shop owner Hiroaki Yamatani collects the mail which is all written in oil on waterproof paper and delivers them to the post office where they are sent to their respective addresses. In addition to being the world’s only underwater mailbox, it also holds the Guinness World Record for being the world’s deepest mailbox at 32 feet (100 meters) deep.
