The Japanese Game

Ted bought this game at the second hand store.  The box top looks like 2-6 players can play, but we don’t know the rules.  No directions came with it.  Maybe it’s something like Scrabble.  It has lots of wooden blocks with the hiragana characters on one side and a picture of something starting with that character on the other.  It also has some blocks with a shape on one side and yes, no, or thank you on the other.


Does anyone know how to play or where I can find out?  Arigato gozaimasu!

The pieces themselves, the whole box even, are colorful and look like they'd be fun to handle and play with.

I think it is an 'A for apple, B for book' kind of memory play, but using hiragana and the Japanese names of things. Please note that melon usually is spelled in katakana as it is a loan word. The reason it is spelled in hiragana here is probably evidence that this is an educational game for very young children.
