Karuta – A Japanese Card Game
Japan Video Topics – English
In karuta, one player reads the writing on a card, and the others try to be first to spot the card with the picture that matches. This game has long been enjoyed by families and friends, but it gained a new face with the recent popularity of competitive karuta. Competition cards feature 100 famous poems from an ancient collection called Hyakunin Isshu. It’s a contest of speed as well as memory, and we’ll watch a national champion spot her card in just 0.2s. The old poems also provide an introduction to Japanese culture, another attraction for the growing number of players who are now taking up this game around the world.
"competetive karuta now has fans all around the world"

I bet Go would beat Saya easily with his gamer hands.
needed to see if the game from that annoying ass chihayafuru ad on crunchyroll was real, it seemed so dumb but now it seems a bit less lame
School entry in japan
Professer: so why did you want to come to our school.
Me: well you see its complicated
The Japanese could make watching paint dry competitive
Came here because of KarutaBot on Discord. Nice to to see and learn about this game.
Oh to be in Japan right now
Who came here from Chihaya Furu?😅
If you are wishing to play this, think again. You might end up in a tragedy like Taichi because not everyone is as good as Arata.
Conan brought me here
I like the idea but the splattering of cards is lame. Just get your hand on the card first.
For now, I think I'll stick to 花札 and 将棋
Here from Shin-chan
Only problem for playing this game is I can't read Japanese except for some Kanji form.
