For a very long time I couldn't put my hands on some Japanese Patriotic labels, so here are the new ones I recently got!

1876 (Meiji 9) - Makoto Shimizu establishes a company named "Shinsuisha" in Honsho-yanagihara, Tokyo and starts manufacturing of "Yellow Phosphorus Match."

1888 (Meiji 21) -  Shinsuisha goes bankrupt. Makoto Shimizu goes to Kanazawa to live the life of a recluse.

1890 (Meiji 23) - Riki Sato follows Makoto Shimizu on the business and reopens Shinsuisha in Fukagawa, Tokyo.
