Hello. We are Kotenbungakukenkyubu. It means classical literature research club. We play “Karuta”. “Karuta” is a popular card game based on the hyakunin isshu poems. Hyakunin isshu is a collection of 100 old Japanese waka poems, one each by 100 poets. Karuta plays one to one and we use 50 random cards and put 25 cards each on our positions on Tatami. Then, we scramble for 50 cards one at a time, when we hear the sentence the card is about end. If I take a card of opponent, I can send my card opponent from my position. In the end, I win when my position’s cards run out.
We are active three days a week and we participate in a national competition. The club members are cheerful beyond grade and are very friendly. I hope everyone can know about the merits of our club.
Please look forward to our blog being updated.
