Subject of this tsutsugaki is an old Japanese game played by the upper classes; Kai Awase. The game originated in the 12th century, Heinan Period.

Angelika... If you want to know more about this game, I found an excellent narrative about it in Flowers, Dragons, Pine Trees by Mary Dusenbury, page 248. If you don't have this book, I can copy and email the text to you.
