Found these photos on a Japanese auction site. It looks hand-made, but the listing mentions that there were multiple copies created. No other info. Anybody recognize this?

I do recognize it and yes, it is handmade or self-published. Baby_Dream send me an offer of this deck and another one from the same artist just 2 days ago. Needless to say I immediately ordered them. I don't have them yet, so other then that, no info. But you can always contact her if you want to get a copy.

What a pity :sd. Yes, it can be costly to get all the decks she is offering. I don't get them all, but enough of them to be happy with. I guess I am lucky in that respect.

I saw somewhere someone remark on the little handwritten bit of paper in the box. The information there translates (courtesy of baby_dream) as:

First of all, thank you for buying my cards. Attached purple pack is a Tarot-pillow, in the pack there is a special compound herb for this Tarot. Please don't open and hold beside Cards. I hope that these cards give you a correct advice and show you a correct way, and pray that such answer leads you to a beautiful future From Author

Pity that. I thought it might tell us about the DECK !! I also wish I had got the translation BEFORE I opened it - but at least it was easy to reseal !

Anyone know why Justice is numbered XV as well as tbe devil ?

Yes I have that deck. It is by the same artist who did the Stone's  tarot.

You can see it on my tarot weblog for 3 July 2008.

If I have time today I will put up the tarot of Stones.

Was it you mentioned the inscrutable sheet of Japanese, then ??

Anyway - I still want to know why two cards are numbered XV - and even baby_dream doesn't know :D

It is just a mistake. The artist makes a similar one with the Stone's Deck where 'Justice' is numbered  'X' as well as the Wheel of Fortune. 

It no doubt arises from a lack of familiarity with Roman numerals in Japan. Here there is an uncertainty about the Roman numeral for 11, as it is the Justice cards which is wrongly numbered in both cases.
