Limited edition, 100% custom-designed deck crafted around legend and capturing ancient tradition.
The 60-card Turning Japanese Playing Cards deck features absolutely breathtaking illustrations built around Japanese culture and lore, and embodying the ideal that anything is possible with perseverance and determination. When fanned from left to right, the masterfully crafted back design also forms a gorgeous Japanese fan from flowers being held inside a dragon’s mouth.
This deck draws its inspiration from renowned illustrator Marine Loupe’s Turning Japanese series, as well as the ancient tale of the koi fish. Legend has it that a group of koi fish was swimming upstream and, against all odds, one single koi persevered to reach the top of a waterfall. The gods rewarded this effort by turning the koi into a golden dragon—an iconic symbol of power and strength.
