Hello from across the *East Sea* (as known here on the Korean side) or *Sea Of Japan* (as known in Japan)!!!

This photo really caught my eye, Helen! Nice colorful idea. Did you image this with your digicam or use a flatbed scanner. I'd probably go the easy route for this and use my scanner!

I didn't realize (but should have known) that these cards originated in Japan. Here in Korea, they are almost a national pasttime in a game named *GoStop*. Looks like you're missing 3 rows from a total of 48 cards! ;-) There is some good info on this site:

Cheers! David
