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.
