Gorgeous Monopoly Set Spotlights Japanese Arts And Crafts


A licensing deal with USAopoly has resulted in versions of Monopoly for every possible fandom out there.

But this one is unexpected—and delightful.

Created to celebrate the 300th anniversary of a Japanese crafting store called Nakagawa Masamichi, the “Japanese Traditional Arts & Crafts Edition” of the game puts players in bidding and buying wars over companies that specialize in things such as teapots and handmade traditional Japanese toys.

The game plays like any other version of Monopoly, but instead of cornering the real estate market, the goal focuses on buying and expanding businesses that sell traditional arts and crafts.

The board is limited to only 5,000 orders and is available for $48, with a fancier version of the game for $80. It can be imported from White Rabbit Japan.
