This project was successfully funded on Kickstarter with the support of our amazing backers!

Our Sensu Fusion deck combines standard poker indices, hanafuda imagery, and custom-designed hanafuda indices into a multipurpose deck that can be used to play both Eastern and Western games.

The card ranks correspond to the hanafuda months (A = January, 2 = February, 3 = March, and so on). Our hanafuda indices indicate the flower (Pine, Plum, Cherry, Wisteria, and so on) and type of each card (Bright, Ten, Ribbon, Chaff).

These helpful indices also make the Fusion deck a great way to learn and teach hanafuda.

Hanafuda (known in Korea as ‘Hwatu’) are pipless, symbolism-rich, floral-themed playing cards that are popular in Japan, Korea, and Hawaii.

Hanafuda decks have 12 suits. Each suit is represented by a month of the year (e.g. June) and each month is represented by a flower (e.g. peony).

Hanafuda can be used to play numerous games, including traditional classics such as Koi-Koi, Hachi-Hachi (88), Go-Stop, and many many more.

Hanafuda are typically smaller and thicker than Western playing cards, however, our deck uses standard poker-sized cards so you can enjoy the rich detailed art.
