This looks more like a Chinese design. Samurai are from Japan.

It is a Chinese deck. My parents brought me back a deck with that exact card back in the eighties.

I think the theme of the deck was the Journey to the West.

I think I had a set of those - they might be "Characters in Water Margin". I got them from Pier One.

Iain Cheyne said...

Yes that's right. They were definitely based on the Water Margin.
