Shigureden: a theme park for Hyakunin Isshu

| コメント(0) はてなブックマーク - Shigureden: a theme park for Hyakunin Isshu 

In January 2006 a new meuseum and theme park for "Hyakunin Isshu", a japanese traditional cardgame opened in Arashiyama, Kyoto.

Basically Hyakunin Isshu is a poem collection, but has been played as a cardgame using card deck. 100 cards are spread out on the floor. The reader reads one of 100 poems. The players try to be the first one to grab the card matching to the poem. Players should try to memorize all hundred poems so that they can grab the cardquickly after hearing the very first part of each poem.

The chairman of Nintendo built this museum and visitors can play the digital game of Hyakunin Isshu. Nintendo produced DS software for it, too.

How about visiting there and playing it?
