Description

Karuta is the most popular among the many kinds of card games in Japan. It is played mostly on New Year's Day, but there are also national conventions for playing karuta. Each card has a poem, or portion thereof, written on it with a total of 100 poems in the game.


On this card you can see Kakusan-ni. Nun Kakusan-ni, wife of Hōjō Tokimune (1251-1284), after her husband's death. Because it was then customary for a wife to become a nun after her husband's death, she decided to open the temple and dedicate it to the memory of her husband. She also made it a refuge for battered wives.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T%C5%8Dkei-ji

In 1285, Kakusan Shido established Tokeiji as a Rinzai Zen Buddhist convent in Kamakura after the death of her husband, Hojo Tokimune, the 8th Regent of the Kamakura Shogunate. Her birth name was Horiuchi and she belonged to the Adachi clan. Abbess Kakusan knew first hand that women were often pawns of revenge killings and wars; therefore, she had the desire to establish the first convent used to shelter women.

Yodo-ni (1318-96), a daughter of Emperor Go-Daigo, found sanctuary at Tokeiji after the death of her brother, Prince Morinaga in Kamakura. Naa-hime (1609-44) the daughter of Toyotomi Hideyori and granddaughter of Hideyoshi was brought to Tokeiji in 1615 after she was rescued from Osaka castle with her step-mother Sen-hime by the order of Tokugawa Ieyasu, Sen-hime’s grandfather. Tokeiji was then given extraterritorial rights by the Tokugawa Shogunate.
In the late Edo Period (1603-1868), Tokeiji was widely known as the “Divorce Temple” by sheltering runaway wives for 2 or 3 years to protect them by the authority of the shogunate, provide counseling and give them the choice of a legal divorce. Most of the women later returned to their parents’ home and some were reunited with their husbands. In the museum at Tokeiji there are many short poems written by the runaway women. These poems are senryu, similar to haiku, but with an ironic or bitter twist. In 1901, Tokeiji’s history as a convent and sanctuary ended when it became a monastery. It lost its extraterritorial rights when the Edo Period ended and the Meiji government set up courts for divorce. Kakusan Shido’s vision for Tokeiji lasted over 600 years.

The other card talks about the story in Japanese.



****** PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT THE ENTIRE CARD SET but rather some of the cards as it was an incomplete game so we broke them up into smaller sets.

2 cards in this set.

In this set, the game of karuta involves two types of cards.

1 "reading" card with drawings: yomifuda
1 "grabbing" card with words: torifuda

There are whole phrases of waka from the collection called Hyakunin Isshu written on the yomifuda. Only the lower phrase of the waka is written on the torifuda. When the reader reads out the waka on the yomifuda, the player quickly searches for the card among the torifuda to look for the phrase that matches the one that the reader is reading. This is the basic rule.

These are from the "昭和" "showa period" . The "showa" period is from 1926-1989 but these are from 1937.

These would be great for using in your art...mixed media, collage etc.
Each card measures 7 x 4.8 cm.

You get the cards you see in the pictures.
