In July 2002 Magic the Gathering had its sixth anniversary in Japan. To commemorate the event, Hobby Japan, the local Magic distributor in Japan and organizer of the Japanese tournament environment, published five cards selected from the Ice Age block which were not otherwise available in Japanese because the first expansion printed in Japanese was Mirage. They were distributed via a mail-in program until 30 September 2002. Nine bar codes of Japanese 7th Edition, Odyssey or Torment boosters had to be cut out and sent in to receive one randomly selected present card.
Additionally each participant of the mail-in program received two advertisement cards.
Hobby Japan has also published a wide collection of life counters.
