More goodies arrived today. Really impressed by "A Guide to Japanese Role-Playing Games" by @bitmap_books It's big and heavy, well made and very carefully shipped.

花札を選別するために使われていたトレイでしょうか。山内任天堂旧本社に残された備品からは、この建物が製造工場として稼働していた頃の歴史が感じられます。 歴史的価値のあるものを残しつつ、創業の地である京都や日本、そして世界のために私たちができることを、できることから進めていきます。
