160310-0044 - Playing Karuta


Inside Taisho 1910s Kigendo

Illustration of Japanese women in kimono playing Karuta.

One person reads part of a poem on a yomifuda (reading) card, while others try to be the first to get the corresponding torifuda (grabbing) cards with the rest of the poem.

This postcard was published sometime between March 1907 (Meiji 40) and March 1918 (Taisho 7).
