These stickers are made by Japanese Tobacco (JT), who also runs a salt and tobacco museum up in Tokyo.
A few ads from a bygone era:

  1. typical Japanese english – ‘meet your delight’. is JT like Phillip Morris? What’s the first ad for – prophylactics? I guess the second one is for Peacock Cigarettes. Suppose that’s the precursor to the JT standys – Peace, Hope.

  2. I think JT is more of a government-sponsored monopoly, if I remember correctly (but don’t quote me on this). Both ads are for cigarettes, made by rival companies in the distant past of Japan.
