ANAFestaSHopHanedaAirportNot only is the ANA Fiesta shop loaded to the rafters with all sorts of ANA logo merchandize, such as shirts, jackets, model airliners of all sorts, stickers, posters, calendars, and just about everything else you might think of, they also boast a huge selection of very high quality colour photo postcards of the airline’s historic aircraft.

Being a hard-core fan of classic propliners and classic jetliners, I naturally gravitated to purchasing postcards that depicted planes from the 1960s and 1970s.

They had a whole rack of these postcards with upwards of one hundred different cards, but many were of current day ANA airliners, that do not hold the same level of interest as the older aircraft. But for those so inclined, there are loads of Airbus, Triple Seven, 767 post cards, featuring action shots, air-to-airs and neat airport views.

Apologies for the stating the obvious, but you won’t find these cards for sale outside of Japan. I would be shocked if they are actually available at any other locations within Japan outside of this particular store. I did visit several aviation hobby shops in Tokyo (including Top Gun and Ikaros) these cards were not available. So they are unique to the Haneda Festa shop.

The image print quality of the postcards is very high, although I wish they were slightly larger in size. They only measure 4 X 5.5 inches. A standard 4 X 6 inches would have been even better, but beggars cannot be choosers. These cards are actually self published by ANA.

As a side note, I did visit JAL’s brand store at Haneda during this same visit, and it wasn’t a patch on the ANA Festa shop. Not nearly the same quantity of selection in any of the product categories, and certainly no series of vintage airline postcards were on offer. Huge shame.
