Kyoto fan, hinoki fan "Hanaguruma

The fan was born in Kyoto.

Its history is long, dating back to the Heian period.

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

The oldest hinoki fan in Japan is said to be the one found in the arm of a statue of the thousand-armed Kannon (Goddess of Mercy) at To-ji Temple, dated to the first year of Genkei era.

This hinoki fan is an original one, which is made by combining the latest techniques of modern maki-e and Kyoto craftsmen's skills to create a "flower wheel" pattern on a thin hinoki wood panel.

We hope you will enjoy displaying it for many years to come, reminiscing about the Heian period.
