Let’s Play Karuta!
Karuta is a set of Japanese-style playing cards. The set normally consists of two types of cards- Yomi fuda, reading cards, and Tori fuda, playing cards. On the Yomi fuda, a proverb is written while on the Tori fuda, a picture is depicted. Each yomi fuda has a corresponding tori fuda. A Reader is chosen at the start of the game who picks a card from the Yomi fuda pile to read aloud. The game is to match a card from the tori fuda pile with the proverb being read, faster than the others. Instead of proverbs, in certain kinds of Karuta, poems are also written.

In yet another exciting event, JCA brings to you an adaptation of this classic Japanese game using Hiragana cards.
Prizes await the fastest player! May the speed be with you..
