Kai-Awase is the name of a memory game for children. The pairs of shells are painted with scenes of mythology and then placed face down. You collect the pairs when you turn over a picture and can remeber where the match is.
Of course no princess can be left in the garden alone, so her nanny is there to teach her while a musician plays soft music in the background. Another lady in waiting is adjusting the gears in the chest box of the samurai robot who serves as her protector.
Here are a couple of close-ups...
