Fanning to cool, cool to the eyes, a Kyoto-style Japanese fan that has both use and beauty.

With a design that adorns coolness, the Kyoto-style Japanese fan is also visually cool. Each and every one is made by the hands of skilled craftsmen. The making of a Kyoto-style Japanese fan involves about 80 steps, and the skilled craftsmen demonstrate their abilities in each of the steps of frame making, base paper making, drawing, and assembly until completion. While making an effort in inheriting those skills, Hakuchikudo incorporates new styles and is an old established shop in its tenth generation. There are elegant items hand drawn by skilled painters, as well as novel items with humorous modern writings. Over the centuries the fan brought good fortune called “suehiro (rise in prosperity)”. When opened, its pattern, color, and design can be enjoyed, and when closed, it is compact and convenient to carry around. A lucky item with both practicality and fashionability, it is an essential item for the Japanese summer.

As each and every one is hand made delicately with the techniques of skilled craftsmen, the Kyoto-style Japanese fan is a unique masterpiece. Traditional Kyoto style Japanese fans are made through various processes of bamboo splitting, end trimming, base paper making, drawing, gilding, folding, and finishing.
