Hello fellow Magicians,

Can anyone help me with the English instructions for the Mikame Drawing Card Box.

If you did not purchase it from Stevens Magic, then contact Murphy Magic, the wholesaler for Mikame products. They have had English instruction for many of the Mikame props, and will provide.

If they can't, then that means they never sold it to magic websites and magic stores.

The only other solution is for you find a Japanese person to translate the sheet you have, or scan the instructions you have and use the Google translator to convert it to English.

Both great suggestions Bill.

Thanks. Looks like the referenced Stevens web page says the instruction are in Japanese, and only an English summary, whatever that is.

Stevens does deal directly a lot of the time, so this box may have never been offered through a wholesaler like Murphy's.

Japanese is a lot like German, does not translate well at all. They don't use adjectives so it does not help much. I have a fanning deck, that came with a Japanese booklet. At the time I had a friend, his wife was Japanese. She was kind enough to read the Japanese characters, and it come out the same as the what I thought was poorly written. So I did not find anything new or with more detail.

NOte: Not all Mikame props came with English instructions, only a select few.
