Limited Edition Japanese Monopoly Game Would Remind You Of A Miyazaki Film

In celebration of its 300th anniversary this year, Nakagawa Masashichi Shoten—a promoter of traditional arts and crafts—has redesigned the classic board game Monopoly to commemorate traditional patterns, textiles and businesses that are iconic to Japanese culture.
The limited edition version of the board game features Zipangu cards instead of the community chest and chance cards; a Nanbu ironware craft business instead of Illinois Avenue and a Hato-guruma (Dove Cart) in place of railroads, among others.
Only 5000 pieces of the game are produced and they come in two varieties: one priced at approximately $80 that includes all the game pieces and an alternative priced at an estimated $48 that utilizes six “deer” as game pieces.
