We just found an incredible picture of the real first Nintendo H.Q in Kyoto, around 1889. All the information here (in French):

Yes, with "patriotic"'s playing cards, in 1942. Those cards where ordered by the imperial government and then sold/share to family, school for people/children to play with.

Three points: The bike appears to have a bell on the handlebar and a kick stand, both probably post-1889 innovations. Marufuku was incorporated, which the sign indicates, in 1947. The building itself clearly looks older than anything built in the immediate post-WW II years.

well, actualy marufuku is older than nintendo itself. It began with Haikyo, the yamauchi first company. So it’s better not to trust some timelines. Historical researches make move lines and even the official timeline has changed a lot the last decade.
