Kyo-fan, hinoki fan "weeping cherry blossom"

The fan was born in Kyoto.

It has a long history, dating back to the Heian period.

It is said that the first fan "hinoki-fan" was created from a bound together wooden letter used in place of recording paper during the Heian period (794-1185), when gods were a precious commodity.

The oldest hinoki fan in Japan is believed to be the one marked Genkei 1, which was found in the arm of a statue of the thousand-armed Kannon at Toji Temple.

This hinoki fan is made of thin sheets of cypress wood with a pattern of "Red and White Plum Blossoms" by the Edo period painter Korin Ogata, using the latest techniques of modern maki-e and Kyoto craftsmanship.

Please think back to the Heian period and decorate it for many years to come.
