In Japan, 'Western' style playing cards are called 'Trump' cards. Here we have a deck of cards that look like the normal Anglo-French-American* cards but you can also play games like Koi-Koi and Hana Awase with them too! Genius!
*The Pips and Suits are French, The Court cards and embellished Ace of Spades are English, whilst the American's introduced the Jokers.
The cards have the look and feel of Western playing cards but the cards are not printed on anything like Bicycle/USPCC card stock. No air-cushion finish here. Just old fashioned plastic coated cards!
