Some words are written differently in different places. Sagamihara, for example, is usually written in kanji, but it's written in hiragana in the red text on the cover. Sakura (cherry blossom) is written in kanji in the first image, but in hiragana in the third. Matsuri (festival) is written in hiragana in the first and second images, but in a mixture of kanji and hiragana in the third.
