He made a fortune selling playing cards and lost almost all of it in trying to branch out into other areas.
On November 7, 1889, Fusajiro Yamauchi opened the first “Hanafuda” (flower cards) card shop called “Nintendo Koppai”, during a time when the Japanese government was banning playing cards from the hands of the public, due to them being tied to gambling, with the exception of Yamauchi's playing cards. With the huge success he had in selling these cards, he rapidly began expanding and opened another card shop in Osaka. He later went on to create more card games.
Fusajiro departed from the company in 1929, leaving his son-in-law Sekiryo Kaneda (whose name had changed to Sekiryo Yamauchi) in charge of the company. In the next eleven years Fusajiro remained out of the business until he had a stroke, which led to his death in 1940.
Currently, Fusajiro Yamauchi is 161 years, 8 months and 6 days old. Fusajiro Yamauchi will celebrate 162nd birthday on a Monday 22nd of November 2021.
