Some of the cards  showed the pattern of 申 it is in fact the

letter of monkey.  Normally, we (Japanese) use the letter  猿 

for the monkey, but Chinese use the  猴  for the monkey.

Still, only to say the Year of Monkey  we use  申  for monkey.

Don’t ask me why, it’s the ancient 4000 years tradition.

      To a Japanese myself, seeing the change of the fashion or cultural change
      appeared on the face of those cards are amazing. Exchanging the card IS
      the tradition though, it made me wonder what IS the tradition. 🙂
