Remarques & avis / Review — A fine Japanese Iroha Karuta game (Edo version), very probably from the 1950s-60s (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). Superb retro illustration, with children, sakura et dango, manekineko, mochi, pachinko, monkey, fox, oni & more! Would look fine under a frame.

Superbe illustration rétro, avec enfants, sakura et dango, manekineko, mochi, pachinko, singe, renard, oni &c. ! Serait à sa place sous cadre.
