Remarques & avis / Review — A fine Japanese Iroha Karuta game (local version: neither Edo nor Kamigata), probably from the 1960s (postwar Showa feel & design), in 2 large plates (one with the illustrations, the other with the proverbs), meant to be cut into cards, here untouched (rare). Fine retro illustration, on the theme of Japanese folk tales, characters & ghosts: Momotaro, demon fox, etc.! Would look great under a frame.

Un beau jeu japonais Iroha Karuta (version locale: ni Edo ni Kamigata), probablement des années 1960 (design & feeling Showa d'après-guerre), en 2 larges planches (une avec les illustrations, l'autre avec les proverbes), faites pour être découpées en cartes, ici telles que (rare). Superbe illustration rétro, sur le thème des contes folkloriques japonais, de leurs personnages et des fantômes : Momotaro, démons renards, etc. ! Serait bien à sa place sous cadre.
