Karuta is the most popular among the many kinds of card games in Japan. It is played mostly on New Year's Day, but there are also national conventions for playing karuta. Each card has a poem, or portion thereof, written on it with a total of 100 poems in the game.

On this card, there is a female samurai on horse and with arrows. She is "Tomoe Gozen" who is the first female samurai. After her samurai group lost the war, she escaped from her enemies and became a nun.

It says "No one is a brave samurai like her in Kiso mountain (place where the castle is and a group of samurai that she belonged) ".
