Fragrance-infused hand fans that will be enjoyed for a long time to come

Ryosen Yasaka Pagoda

This historic fan shop was first opened around 300 years ago, and it has operated continuously ever since. Among all of Japan’s fans, Kyo-Sense made fans are recommended for their quality and durability. Of course they last longer, and some of them are infused with subtle fragrance. A line of other small items feature pictures of dancing Maiko girls. Also, when in doubt about what item to choose, you can easily ask the store clerks who speak both English and Chinese.

How to buy
Ryosen Yasaka Pagoda How to Buy

Our fan recommendations will differ depending on your gender and your intended use. For example, "Kazari Fans" are folding decorative fans that are not made for actual fanning. If you are unsure which to choose, please consult with a store clerk.
- Shopping Tips -
• We want you to actually pick up a fan and use it to see how well it works for you. However, please don’t treat the merchandise roughly.
• After you buy a fan, you can go up to the shop’s second floor to play a fan-throwing game. If you get a high score, you can win a gift as a prize.
