Genjuro's Hanafuda

Kibagami Genjuro is a great swordsman is SS , also a great gambler too. He is very good at playing Hanafuda or Flower Cards. (in fact, Hanafuda was forbidden in Edo Period and was recovered in Meiji Period, so there is a question how Genjuro plays it) From game, you can see that many Hanafuda Cards appear in Genjuro's moves.

Hanafuda or Hanakaruta (karuta, from Portuguese "Carta") is a gambling card game played with 48 card deck divided into twelve card suits represented twelve months of the year. Each card has different point and name. There are 3 types of cards :
