Language of the Month – Japanese

Hi Everyone,

This week I’ve sharing some games that children play in Japan for you to try. 

The first is called Menko ( for KS2 children )  the second is a website sharing some Japanese games that children of all ages can play indoors. 


(めんこ, 面子) is a Japanese card game played by two or more players. It is also the name of the type of cards used to play this game. Each player uses Menko cards made from thick paper or cardboard, printed on one or both sides with images from anime, manga, and other works. A player’s card is placed on the hardwood or concrete floor and the other player throws down his card, trying to flip the other player’s card with a gust of wind or by striking his card against the other card. If he succeeds, he takes both cards. The player who takes all the cards, or the one with the most cards at the game’s end, wins the game. You can decide how long to play for!

 Its quick and simple rules have made it popular among children of all age groups. Because technique is just as important as power in this game, smaller children can compete fairly with older players.
