●What’s Karuta?

Traditional card game which recently get popularity by Manga “Chihaya fulu”.

A reader read out a poem and players identify the card faster than opponent.

Also called “Marshal arts on Tatami”

【Easy to start】
We are gonna start from a easy few cards.
Then start 1 on 1 game.
After you memorize several cards, we are gonna play team match (3 on 3). Then add the new cards according to your level.

What you have to tell is only a few syllables of cards and each cards have phonetic seal so you wouldn’t be suffered from Hiragana and Kanji stuff.

【Good to】
— Improve both English and Japanese
— Make friends
— Experience traditional Japanese culture and sounds of poetry
— Exercise
— Realize your talent

※In this group, we are going to play “Shimonoku” style Karuta. On Chihaya-fulu, they play “Kaminoku” style. It’s same Hyakunin-Isshu but rule is different.
On Shimonoku, it uses only lower half part of a poem so easy to start. And another difference, Material of card is wood.
So If you are really want to play Karuta with totally same rule as Chihaya-fulu, this group may not suit fir you. However, the core of interesting point is both same and Shimonoku style has even more enjoyable points.
