What we're about

We're looking for anyone who's interested in learning to play Kyogi Karuta!
Karuta is a traditional card game that takes 100 designated poems from the Heian era (794-1185 AD) and makes a 1v1 game similar to the card game "Speed."
If you can read Hiragana you can play, and if you can't read we will teach you!
Check out these clips and see what you think!
