This card game consists of Part 1 and Part 2, with each part containing 60 cards.
You can combine both and play a game with 120 cards, or you can play each Part separately.
If 2 players are playing together, then until both players get familiar with “KANJI”, we recommend playing Part 1 and Part 2 separately.

* 4 instruction sheets are included in each product. The instruction sheet includes the list of possible “KANJI” combinations to complete prefecture names. It may be a good idea when you start playing this game for the first time, to look at “KANJI” as simple symbols, and try to combine these symbols to complete the prefecture names, just like you are playing a puzzle game!
