My children and I visited my parent's house.
My 6-year-old son told his grandmother, "I want to play "Donjara"!"
Donjyara is a picture matching game like mah‐jongg and it has been loved by Japanese families for a long time.
It is also called "Ponjan".
He had never experienced this game before, and he tried it for the first time yesterday.
I thought the rules were a little difficult for him, but he understood them and enjoyed it.
Furthermore, he was not a sore loser!
He enjoyed it very much and he didn't cry when he lost the game.
I was so surprised at him because I was a sore loser when I was a little girl.
But, my 4-year-old daughter was like me.
Before we played Donjara, my mother, my son and my daughter played "karuta".
(* karuta from my past entry : http://a-o-j-m.blogspot.jp/2015/01/stormy-karuta-game.html )
I heard my daughter's wails many times (Maybe she cried every time she lost!).
And I was surprised that my mother kept the Donjara for more than 30 years!
My family often used to play it.
She is a person who takes care about her things very much!
