かるた Karuta Night

Japanese Culture Club organized Karuta (Japanese card game) Night on Wednesday, April 9th. Students made their original cards and played Karuta.Karuta is a traditional Japanese card game which uses “yomifuda” (reading cards) and “torifuda” (grabbing cards). Leaders of the Japanese Culture Club (JCC) helped students of Japanese make their own Karuta cards and played together. Ten members from JCC and 40 students participated in this event. It was a great study break with Japanese snacks. We appreciate JCC to create great opportunities for hands-on experiences to learn Japanese culture throughout this year.
