The focus of Genso & Densho Playing Cards is to introduce popular Japanese folk tales featuring encounters with semi-legendary protagonists, supernatural births, and fantastical creatures. Japanese folk tales, like folklore all around the world, distill nuggets of folk wisdom in stories that are attention-grabbing and easy to understand, especially for children. Through these stories, morals and lessons that are important to the Japanese culture and have endured the passage of time can be glimpsed and appreciated and continue to be passed down for generations to come.
