What is "Tosenkyo"?

Tosenkyo is a traditional Japanese game, characterized by the use of a fan.

A target called a "butterfly" is placed on a base called a "pillow," and a fan is thrown toward the butterfly. Points are awarded according to the shape of the butterfly, the pillow, and the fan when the fan falls.

Usoenkyo is a competitive game and is played one-on-one (two players). The rules for scoring points vary from school to school.

The most well-known styles are the Tale of Genji style and Hyakunin Isshu style, in which each inscription is named after a piece of classical Japanese literature. For example, an inscription named after the Tale of Genji is given one point for "Hanasazari" and eight points for "Yugiri".
