Sensu Folding Fans at Azabujuban Asa no Ha


The tenugui shop Azabujuban Asa no Ha is holding an exhibition of sensu folding fans as they do every summer.

From cotton cloth sensu fans to washi paper sensu fans, they now have sensu fans with a variety of designs. Sensu related items such as sensu fan bag and sensu fan display stand are also available.

The sensu folding fan is made of Japanese washi paper or cloth fixed to thin bamboo slats that are held together by a pivot at one end of a fan. Because sensu fans are collapsible and they can be closed when not in use, they are convenient to bring along and to store.

In Japan, sensu folding fan is used when people wear kimono, or in formal settings such as in traditional performing arts and tea ceremony. In summer, it is used as an ecological item that induces an airflow for the purpose of cooling or refreshing oneself. Outside Japan, sensu is also popular as a decoration.

Please come to Asabujuban Asa no Ha to find your souvenir.
