Been searching for my maternal grandparents’ home town without much luck. A distant relative has provided some clues.
Kamimashiki-gun Otome-mura Funetsu, 867 Bachi (Banchi?)
It is not much to work with but the search continues.

Japan Post entry for the local post office may be here: https://map.japanpost.jp/p/search/dtl/300171216000/
