New Disney Hanafuda Deck Added To My Listings

Disney has given a Japanese games company called Angel a license to produce a novelty Hanafuda card deck with Disney characters on the cards.

Hanafua card decks were first made in Japan over 350 years ago as a Japanese response to the introduction of Western-style playing cards.

A hanafuda card deck consists of 48 cards divided into 12 suits of four cards each. Each “suit” is named after a month of the year and portrays a flower that blossoms during that month.

The word “Hanafuda” can be literally translated as “flower cards”.
