Geek’s Uncle wins Hanafuda competition!

This is a picture of Dad’s brother and thus Geek’s Uncle (on the right) holding a large bag of rice, which, along with $50 gift certificate at Takamiya Market, is first prize for the Hanafuda contest.   Hanafuda is a Japanese card game that he plays with co-workers every lunchtime at his job as an architect.

At the Maui Matsuri Japanese Festival he entered and won the advanced division (the guy on the left won the beginner division).  To win he overcame 16 competitors in advanced group:  two of his co-workers, a very old Japanese woman, and then in the finals, a very grouchy older Japanese man. He really is amazingly diverse in his activities and will go for anything that strikes his fancy.  Go Uncle! 🙂
