A study shows that sensu originated in Kyoto in the 9th century.
This sensu is made by an authentic sensu shop "Kyosedo" established in 1832 in Kyoto. We recommend Kyosendo sensu from its high quality and traditional taste. Moreover, some Kyosendo's sensu have an elegant smell of face powder.
Kyosendo categorizes their products into home decor sensu, men's sensu and ladies' sensu according to purpose. Men's sensu are slightly larger than ladies' ones. Home decor sensu have less bamboo frames.
A sensu price depends on the coating level of bamboo frames, the number of frames, the picture design and the fan material (paper or silk).
