Card playing was a social outlet. When I was young, my grandfather brought me here when he stopped to see his friends. The windows were soaped to prevent people from peering in. I was only allowed to sit on a stool and watch the card games. The game [t]hey played was "Hana" - using small Japanese woodblock picture cards that were kept in dovetailed boxes.
