On 28.02.2016 Karuta Party at “Sakurada” Japanese Restaurant (video)


On February 28, 2016 at 15:00 p.m. at “Sakurada” Japanese restaurant for the second time took place the Japanese traditional game Karuta. The owner of “Sakurada” Japanese restaurant Yuji  Sakurada was reading the card and the other participants were looking for the card, where there was written the first letter of the word read. Mr. Sakurada was also showing the letter on the paper, which he was holding in his hand, as some participants didn’t know Japanese.

This time the participants already knew the game and were passing from one game to another with great pleasure. The winner of the first two games was Serine Khaloyan.

Mr. Yuta Kawakami won the third game. When the forth game began, Yuji Sakurada handed the job of reading cards to Yuta Kawakami and went on running his restaurant. The participants with great pleasure played the game for a long time.
