Japanese playing cards HYAKUNIN-ISSHU

IMG_5086I bought an old set of Japanese playing cards. I think they are called HYAKUNIN-ISSHU (100 Poems by 100 Poets).


The goal of the game is to match the poem with the author, but I can’t do it correctly because I don’t read Japanese.


The illustrations are beautiful.


I was thinking of using them for collage, but I would feel very bad breaking the set.
