Hanafuda for Everyone

Selected Option:

Welcome to Christmas in July! In celebration, this digital title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more of Santa's savings, visit our Christmas in July sale page.

Hanafuda (Japanese 花札lit. 'flower cards') are a well-known type of Japanese playing cards, for which you will find many rulesets online. Our edition is specifically geared towards beginners, has a clear and simple design, and calls out the point values, so that you can start playing right away.


There are 4 x 12 cards included in this deck, that conform to the standard compositional elements of Hanafufa, i.e. sporting the same stylistic elements (Hikari, Tane, Tanzaku, Kasu) as well as the same traditional month/flower combinations. 


The download-option gives you access to two pdf-files, the RGBA-format is more suitable to view on-screen, and the CMYK-format is what most print shops prefer to get. You can choose or keep both.

An internet search for 'Hanafuda' e.g. on will present you with many different rule options, e.g. Koi Koi, Hachi Hachi, or the very traditional Hana-Awase, for which our deck is particularly well suited. 

While this game comes without a card box option, the 'rulebook' link above will give you access to a pdf file with a simple ruleset, a tuckbox template that you can print'n'cut yourself, and a cheat-sheet that has all the cards for easier reference on one page (so you can memorize the suits)!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
