This is the special edition of the Gojoin.  In the center is a dragon inspired by Kenshin Uesugi, who was called the “Dragon of Echigo (the old name for Niigata Prefecture).”  This was planned by Numata City, Gunma Prefecture.  In order to get the special edition of Gojoin, you must collect the castle stamps sold at five castle locations related to Kenshin Uesugi: Kasugayama Castle in Joetsu City, Sarugakyo Castle, Numata Castle, Shirai Castle, and Maebashi Castle in Gunma Prefecture.

 
When you purchase all five, you can get the special Gojoin for free if you show all five Gojoin which you have collected.  Available locations include the Joetsu City Buried Cultural Property Center and the tourist information center in Numata City, Gunma Prefecture.  The special edition “Gojoin” will be available for a limited time.
