The sensu originated from a round fan called an uchiwa, which was introduced from China over a thousand years ago. The sensu was created by the Japanese who improved the uchiwa.
A folding fan is also called a suehiro, which means that it widens towards the end and therefore symbolizes good fortune and often drawn as a motif of a decoration such as a painting for auspicious occasions.
This folding fan has a charm with the same design as the fan pattern, and comes with a fan bag with the same pattern.
It comes in a paulownia box, so it is recommended as a gift.
