hanafuda cards (fortune telling)

Demonstrating a reading with Hanafuda / Hwatu cards, from Korea

Introduced to Korea by the Japanese, they are popularly used as a gambling game, and also fortune-telling cards.

The future can only be told for the individual who is handling the cards -- one cannot read the future for someone else with them. If someone else were to touch the cards while they are being delt, it spoils the reading, and the dealer must begin again, with a fresh shuffle and deal.

No, these are traditional styled cards, but, all Hanafuda cards have some
similarities in their basic designs.

this looks like a game of patience or "solitaire" in usa. In playing card
fortune telling playing patience/solitaire works in the same way. if the
solitaire/patience doesn't work out then the answer is a "no" but if you
complete the game then the answer is "yes" I Read playing cards, tarot, mah
jong, palms and crystal ball. this has been an interesting video. many
thanks x

Interesting! A few months back I got a hwatu deck, and saw that the suits
had little words printed on them ("news,tidings" for pine, "travel" for
cherry, etc) and had no idea why. Now I'm going to have to give this a try.
