Jalan, the popular Japanese travel website/magazine, has the cutest feline mascots named “Nyaran” (the master) and “Deshi” (the follower) . These two cats journey to many alluring places in Jalan’s TV commercials.
This feline pair also have their own Twitter account and post plenty of adorable pictures. Today I would like to share one episode from their Twitter feed!
Here’s the scene: Nyaran and Deshi are about to play a traditional Japanese card game called “Hyakunin Isshu”. Hyakunin Isshu (which literally means “One hundred people, One poem”) originally referred to a collection of classical Japanese poems called “waka”, but it is now best known as a card game. The rules are quite simple. You just find and take the card that the card reader has announced.
Well… If you don’t know the rules, you never can beat your master, Deshi (^^;) But you are cute and that’s enough!
This is JAPAN Style!
