Popular since 2016. Now, you can play karuta like Chihaya!

This English karuta uses the 100 original Japanese poems used for competitive karuta (Ogura Hyakuninisshu). Written from 7th until the 13th century, selected by Fujiwara no Sadaie-Teika (1235) and translated into English by Clay MacCauley (1917).

The poems used in this karuta are translated in the original 5-7-5-7-7 syllables form of the waka. This means you can read - or sing - the poems aloud, keeping the original meter, rhythm and melody like Japanese players have done for 400 years. This karuta has a free reader app called Hyakuninisshu EN which you can use as a companion app to this game.

The cards have the original Japanese illustrations from Shogundo printed on one side and the English translation on the other side, so you can play it in both languages. Playing Hyakuninisshu English Translated Karuta is a wonderful way to practice and learn about Japanese history and spirit.
