It is the main Karuta club in France, founded in 2012 and attached to the Japanese Karuta Federation. It is also one of the first western clubs to have graded players. Pioneers of Karuta outside Japan, they were world champions of the team tournament (accumulating less than 4 dan) in 2018, in Otsu City, Japan.

Their goal is to encourage the growth of Karuta abroad and continue to organize events and tournaments in Europe, in partnership with Japan and the other foreign teams.
