Has anyone by any chance attempted to use Hanafuda cards as a method of divination?

As a child I used to predict future using regular playing cards (my grandma has taught me the method) with quite high success ratio considering me being so careless about it, but I lost interest in it after her death. Now with the whole rise of meme magic I consider getting back to the business with more serious approach.

I've thought about using tarot this time, but the hanafuda cards have more appeal to me and that's probably quite important when it comes to magic. It's basically a deck of Japanese playing cards with floral themes (and they all have some poetic meaning to them).

I didn't have much luck finding any specific info on using them for divination, it's mostly about gambling. Nonetheless, according to my understanding all tools including basic archetypes are suitable.

Is it worth a try or should I rather stick to tarot as a beginner? Any recommendations when it comes to using hanafuda?

As far as I can tell (And i am a little nobody) tarot cards are basically an alphabet to interact with weird stuff that is beyond our normal comprehension. Most likely, it is only a set of archetypes that we use to invoke energies and knowledge that we don't know how to operate with, under the regular scientific model.

So no matter what alphabet you use, as long as it makes sense to you and to the person you are talking to. This is why lots of people can use different cards, because the power is within yourself, the cards are only a way to organize your ideas.

If I'm correct then, the deck is irrelevant as long as the energies it represents are resonating inside of you. You could create your own alphabet with the hanafuda cards, maybe it won't be as powerful as a tarot deck which already has meanings inserted, but if it resonates strongly with you then I would say give it a try.

I would recommend tarot first, just to get familiar with using alphabets made of images

This is correct. Or anything which an archetype set can be overlaid works too.

Go with what calls to you.
