We are located in downtown Kyoto's busiest bustling city districts where the Kamo-gawa river and Shijo-dori street intersect at Shijo Ohashi bridge. Close to Hanami-koji street lined with tea houses, shops, the famed Yasaka-jinja shrine, where you can enjoy the city life, culture, even Maiko performances at Minamiza theatre.
Of course we not only carry fans throughout the seasons, but we carry a number of original Japanese novelties. We are a specialty store dedicated to folding fans and carry over 1000 styles mostly originally made. Every year we come out with new styles and designs.
