This Japanese Kotowaza Proverbs Flashcards is a great learning tool for Nihongo students, novice or advanced. An Amazon bestseller in Japan, each card in this set of 48 flashcard pairs is smartly illustrated in black and white with the start or ending of a famous Japanese proverb (kotowaza), written in Hiragana (this is handy if your Kanji is still shaky but it also means you have to actually know the proverbs, since you can't get a visual hint from the characters).
There is also a pictograph to help you remember or guess the meaning. Can you complete the proverb? Find the matching card to finish the kotowaza, making this also like a game of concentration (aka pairs). The flashcards are designed by Taku Satoh Design Office for NHK.
