Prime Minister of Japan Says That Government Can Learn From Nintendo

Nintendo Hanafuda Cards

Prime Minister of Japan Nintendo

After being asked about his growth plans for Japan, the Prime Minister of Japan referenced Nintendo:

“Well, for example, there’s a company called Nintendo. Over there, they made hanafuda cards, but gradually the people playing hanafuda decreased. However, that company called Nintendo makes hanafuda cards and whatnot, and I believe that only by doing that, it wasn’t able to protect hanafuda.” So Nintendo adapted, and moved towards video games, eventually leading them to become the biggest name in gaming, all the while “keeping the traditional hanafuda cards. For sure, I think this is something that we can learn from.”

It’s good to see that Nintendo has been recognized for the impact that they’ve made!
