I would like to thank David for bearing with my PayPal problems and being overall very helpful and showing consideration and patience. I received my Genkai mahjong set two weeks after placing an order, a week after it was sent from Japan. The set was exactly as shown on the photos, top quality as promised, carefully packed, and everything was in place (even some spare scoring sticks). It was delivered by an EMS courier right to the door. David even took extra time to notify me about some minor changes in the set composition and have sent me additional photos, asking me to confirm my order. I would recommend this shop to anybody who'd like to buy a japanese mahjong set or accessories, for it is fast, reliable and you get exactly what you see on the website. David is a great seller, caring for his client's problems and trying to find solutions together. I am very impressed overall and can surely say this was my best international shopping experience, despite my problems with paying from Russia via PayPal. Alexey Andronov Saint Petersburg, Russia

Nintendo Kabufuda Deck

Kabufuda (“nine-cards”) are Japanese playing cards used for gambling games such as Oicho-Kabu. A Kabufuda deck contains 40 cards, with designs representing the numbers 1 through 10. There are four cards for each number.

The object of all kabufuda card games is to get a total closest to nine. Oicho-Kabu is a traditional Japanese gambling game similar to baccarat. The goal of the game is to reach a total closest to 9 without going over. As in baccarat, the last digit of any total over 10 makes your hand: a 15 counts as 5, a 12 as 2, and a 20 as 0.

The name of the Japanese mafia, Yakuza, originates from this game. The worst Oicho-Kabu hand is 8-9-3, or “ya-ku-sa”. This gives a sum total of 20, or 0 points.

The Nintendo Kabufuda Deck available here is the classic Japanese deck.

Worldwide shipping by Express Mail Service.
