Not so easy to recognize when you're not that familiar with Hanafuda =)
Hi, yes, you need to be familiar with Hanafuda really. Adding numbers for the months would rectify that.
Just saw (reading older posts) that you designed theses cards !I think you did a great job ! =)
You should really put these on Kickstarter and get them printed!
Wow, these are amazing! I love this style and artwork. I would really love to be able to buy a deck!
Hi and thank you for your kind words.
Hello, I like the chic design of your cards. I have a lot of trouble remembering which month is which; however, If I were you, I would not modify your design with numbers, because the esoteric nature of the cards is part of their charm. You have an impressive collection of hanafuda. I saw your 'My Nintendo Hanafuda' post from June 2012 and I wondered if you would be will to provide some information on the different versions of hanafuda. I have the Nintendo Chiyozakura edition, which is probably the cheapest Nintendo set (but the first one I found).
Hi, sorry for the late reply. I'm glad you like my card designs and agree with you about adding numerals as one soon gets familiar with the card types and suits.I have a few posts regarding my hanafuda (Japanese, Korean, Hawaiian and French) on here, so feel free to check them out at your leisure. I must say that I do tend to use my Korean cards more when playing because they are made of plastic, so are more durable than the Japanese cards (but not as well made).
Hi Duarcain,I apologise for contacting you out of the blue. My name is Emily and I work at Tele-search which is a Japanese production company based in London, UK. I have been asked to contact you on behalf of a production team based in Japan who came across your blog and wanted to consider you for a TV show.The episode we are working on is focusing on people such as yourself who are collecting/practicing a Japanese art here in the UK. They would then pick one of the participants and send them to Japan to learn more about it from a Master of that art in Japan.We wanted to get some more information from you to see whether you would be a good fit for the programme so would really appreciate if you could send us a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org.Many thanks,Emily
