Today in Postal History

Japan to Ireland
October 12, 1937

A Japanese surcharged postal card with a 1937 Mt. Fuji 3s green uprate (Scott (171)
Unfortunately, I cannot add anything concerning the postal card.

Especially interesting is the routing: Ireland Via Siberia.
This is likely to have been carried by the Trans-Siberian railway.

Notice the Japanese characters added to aid the postal workers.
Can anyone identify the city where this went into the mails?
