This work was produced for the new release of a new work with the theme of "JAPAN".
“Genjiko” is a traditional Japanese game to guess the scent.
There are a total of 52 designs that are used in“Genjiko-no-Zu”.
Those designs are indescribably fascinating.
Among them, there are only 3 designs that can be used for this device.
At first, I planned to use all 3 designs but as there was no time I made this item with only one design.
As a result of using only 1 design, it became a coherent and easy-to-play work.
