What is Shiba Inu?

Shiba Inu is a culturally famous and native japanese dog breed. Its a small and agile dog, that was declared a national treasure in Japan in 1936. Formally hunting dogs for wild boar and small prey. They are a common companion pet with a more independent nature to them compared to other dogs.

DESIGN

Simplistic design incorporating the 2 main aspects of Shiba seigaiha. The back is a traditional style seigaiha patterned crest. Adorned with 3 different shiba faces in a minimalistic clean style. Uniquely styled pips and special face and joker cards, incorporating aspects of japanese culture, explained further below.

PIP DESIGN

FACE CARDS

Face cards are designed with ascending height from a crouching/standing/sitting positions. The King card is a reference to Hachiko, which is a true story of a japanese dog remembered for its loyalty to its master. In Shibuya there is a bronze statue built in his honor. Each year on March 8th, Hachiko's devotion is honored at Shibuya railroad station in Tokyo.

NUMBER CARDS

2 Sets of JOKERS

Joker cards come in a specialised set of two. The text "dai-kichi" means "Great Blessing" since you found a rare dog bone. The other joker "dai-kyo" means "Great Curse" since the dog bone has been stolen by a thief Shiba Inu. The text "dai-kichi" and "dai-kyo" are commonly used in O-mikuji which are fortune paper in Shinto shrines in Japan.
