Hanafuda: flower cards

Hanafuda is a traditional Japanese card game. A hanafuda card is about half the size of playing cards and a set of hanafuda cards consists of twelve sets of four cards corresponding to each month of the year with the design of animals or plants such as cherry blossoms, a wild boar, a butterfly, and so on. A popular game played with hanafuda cards is called koikoi in which players compete on the points gained for the combination of cards. Nintendo, a company known for TV games, is originally a maker of hanafuda cards and they still produce hanafuda cards.
