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 is a very beautiful folding fan with cherry blossoms painted on the black bone. The surface of the fan is decorated with dancing cherry blossom petals.
This folding fan comes with a fan bag with the same pattern and in a paulownia box, so it is recommended as a gift.
