Every set exists in 2 colors : black & red ( ocher )
From top to bottom :
- Daitoryo ( Napoleon ) ( “daitoryou” means “president” in Japanese )
- Tengu ( the Tengu is a long nose supernatural being )
- Miyako no Hana ( ” miyako ” means ” the capital ” and “hana” means ” flower(s)” )
The Miyako no Hana sets are cheaper than the others
( about 30 % cheaper, usually ) because the quality of the
paper used for the cards is not as high.
( they look and feel exactly the same though, maybe they don’t last as long … )
There is also a Kabufuda set ( at the bottom of the photo ),
in black only, the box looks almost the same as the Hanafuda
Daitoryo but for the small white pastille on the front with the 2 kanji :
kabu-fuda one above the other ( see photo ).
