I can’t be the only one in love with Japanese stamps. See more new release stamps at the Japan Post website. It’s only in Japanese, but looking at the pretties doesn’t require any Japanese. Should you find a stamp you’d like to order (within Japan only, I think), you can click on the stamp and make a purchase (shipping is 440 yen) — or head over to your post office and tell them what you want!
New stamps seem to come out around once a week, so keep checking back!
Stamp Rates from Japan (as of March, 2010):
Domestic Postcards: 50 yen
Domestic Letters (up to 25g): 80 yen
