Traditional Japanese fans for many uses

Kyosendo - Shopping Mall Kyoto Porta

/ 京扇堂 Porta店
Established in 1832, Kyosendo has been in business in Kyoto for such a long time. If you think that this is only for fanning yourself, there actually is another way to enjoy it. Historically, there is the way to enjoy beautiful fans by putting on the stand in the room so that people can enjoy by sight in every season. In this shop located in Shopping Mall Kyoto Porta, you can buy those fans and also an actual fan to use in a hot weather. Every fan is made by the fan masters, so they are all fine...more and delicate.

I loved the delicate design of the beautiful fans! I have given one of the fans to my grandfather before, and he used it for such a long time. The staff are very nice and kind, so if you have any questions, please feel free to ask them. There is another shop in front of Nishi-Honganji Temple, so please also have a look around the shop if you are around there!
Fan for a display
Recommend !
Fan for a display / ¥7,000 ~
Look at all these extreme beauty of a delicate paintings! If you are wondering what you would buy as a souvenir, we highly recommend that you get this. It is very light and small, so you can easily bring back to your home country. This is for a garnish, so the stand to put on the fan would come along.
Pink fan
Recommend !
Pink fan / ¥2,300
This is an actual fan for hot weather. The price is more reasonable than the one for a garnish. The design of this fan is a Japanese cherry blossom and you may like the pale pink color. This is made of Japanese paper called Washi which is registered as a UNESCO Intangible Culture Heritage in 2014 and the frame is made of a bamboo tree.
