Japanese Card Game Bridges Generational Gap

From the Honolulu Star Advertiser: This past weekend witnessed Hawaii’s first intergenerational Hanafuda card game tournament. For the first time, children were allowed to participate, because as the organizer said, “This is a cultural treasure…. A gift from the issei to us. It’s our duty to pass it on to the next generation.” Hanafuda was originally brought by the Japanese plantation workers to Hawaii, where it has “evolved…becoming a pastime for families during get-togethers.”
