These clamshells were designed for shell-matching game, which was popular with court aristocrats during the Heian period of Japan (9th to 12th century). They are also called the "origin of Uta-Karuta" (traditional poem cards). In order to express the elegance of the dynastic culture, clamshells produced in Japan are colored with pure gold. This will make an ideal gift for a wedding, or other joyous events such as seasonal festivals.
