Hanafuda (花札, “flower cards”) are a style of Japanese playing cards. They are typically smaller than Western playing cards, only 2+1⁄8 by 1+1⁄4 inches (5.4 by 3.2 cm), but thicker and stiffer. On the face of each card is a depiction of plants, tanzaku (短冊), animals, birds, or man-made objects. One single card depicts a human. The back side is usually plain, without a pattern or design of any kind. Hanafuda are used to play a variety of games like Koi-Koi and Hachi-Hachi. In Korea, hanafuda are known as Hwatu (Korean: 화투, Hanja: 花鬪, “battle of flowers”) and made of plastic with a textured back side. The most popular games are Go-stop (Korean: 고스톱) and Seotda (Korean: 섯다). Hwatu is very commonly played in South Korea during special holidays such as Lunar New Year and Chuseok (추석).In Hawaii, hanafuda is used to play Sakura. Hanafuda is also played in Micronesia, where it is known as Hanahuda and is used to play a four-person game, which is often paired cross-table.
