from the director


The museum was opened with the concept of a place where everyone can touch the card.

Japanese Karuta, Menko, playing cards, or professional baseball cards that I played as a child.
Use memorization cards for studying, exchange business cards as adults, have credit cards, and “cards” are friends and companions that are used in every aspect of life. It can be said.

How tarot cards and oracle cards are used and what role they play is different for each user, and the possibilities are endless.

We hope that you will make great use of this museum not only as a tool for fortune-telling and introspection, but also as a place for learning and interaction, and as a place for disseminating information.

  • Find yourself innocent.
  • Enjoy meeting new friends.
  • Deepen your knowledge and satisfy your intellectual curiosity.
  • Remember the playfulness.

May you all have new encounters and discoveries.

Asakusa Tarot & Oracle Card Museum


Collection and exhibition of cards from all over the world

We have a collection of cards published all over the world, and some of them are open. You can always see 1,000 types of cards, including popular cards, rare cards issued in small numbers, and out-of-print cards. It is a space where you can feel “the past of the card” and “the present of the card” through many cards.

Lab function to create new cards

We are disseminating the function as a “laboratory” that creates new card projects. It is used as a place to send information to “people who want to make cards” and to generate and shape ideas. Cards that many people will pick up in 5 or 10 years may come from this place.

A place for learning and disseminating information related to cards

We regularly hold lectures and workshops using cards, and events to commemorate the release of new cards. It is a place for learning and interacting with card lovers. We support “unique to this space” projects such as shooting YouTube and cooperating with fortune-telling projects on TV and magazines.

Compiling the history of cards in Japan

It will play a role in compiling the history of cards in Japan and connecting them to an era 50 or 100 years from now. In order not to bury the history of many people involved in the card, we will not only pass on the card to future generations, but also summarize the “contents” such as the thoughts of the people involved.

Collection of materials related to card culture

In addition to collecting cards that have been distributed in Japan, we also collect various materials related to cards. Contracts with authors, rough sketches in the process of production, advertisements for sales promotion … These are “life history” where you can feel the thoughts of the people involved in the card.
