japanese matchbox labels

Thanks to Michael for sending me these matchbox labels. Collected by his Grandfather, the labels date around the 1920s-40s. I welcome any translations or instruction on which way round the labels should be! If you like these I would highly recommend the book "Matchbox Label Collection 1920s-40s" published by the Japanese publisher Pie Books ISBN4-89444-357-0.
