Hanafuda (花札) are playing cards of Japanese origin that are used to play a number of games. The name literally translates as "flower cards."[1][2] The name also refers to games played with those cards.In 1549, the 18th year of Tenbun, a missionary Francis Xavier landed in the country and the crew of his ship had carried a set of 48 Portuguese Hombre playing cards from Europe, and eventually card games became popular with people, along with their use for gambling.

Hanafuda ("flower cards") are used to play a traditional Japanese card game called oicho-kabu (おいちょかぶ). The worst hand in oicho-kabu is an 9 and 3 (yattsu, ku, san), phonetically expressed as "ya-ku-za".
