“BABA” is a Japanese family name but there are 9 combinations of different kanji characters. With these character cards, let’s play like ‘Concentration,’ ‘Old Maid,’ or ‘Buta no Shippo (Pig’s Tail)’.

• PV (66 sec.)

All cards are BABA!

Hilariously confusing to the eye!

BABA is a family name, printed on the cards in 9 different ways. And the character OBABA, means ‘grandma’ or ‘old lady’ in Japan.
Don’t get cocky! Kanji may look the same but lookout for little differences! It’s confusing!
