Children and games are difficult to separate. In playing the games, a child can hone many things, such as how to make friends, understanding the value of loyal friends, enthusiasm, the feeling of never give up, how to keep trying, tolerance towards others, and much more. By playing, especially in games that involve groups, a child will get the experience that will have a major influence on the formation of character and growth and development. Japanese society is known as a group society. The involvement of a person in a group is one of the ways on how to be a part of a community group. The pride of being a member of a community group is shown by the role and obligation of someone who is included in a group to realize the group’s goals together. Of course, the importance of group awareness is not taught briefly but is something that has been accustomed since early childhood. This research will discuss the meaning of games made by children in Japan that form the character of the group society.
