Uchiwa(Bamboo fan) is a traditional Japanese round hand fan and is commonly used by the people even today.
Other than fanning yourself to cool you down, you can use it to burn charcoal quickly in occasions like barbeques and/or campfires. Also you may use it to cool down hot boiled rice when making sushi rice.
In addition to being a cheap and practical item to cool yourself, in Japan, Uchiwaafs are commonly used as a sales promotion item. In summer time, Uchiwa's are used for sales promotions and are distributed throughout the city.
Because of its wide range of usage, many sport teams, schools, companies, and musicians use Uchiwa not only in summer but all year round.

We offer Uchiwas made of traditional bamboo and also a more reasonable polypropylene (plastic) types.



Sensu is a traditional Japanese folding fan made of paper on a bamboo frame, commonly with a picture or calligraphy printed. It is used for fanning oneself in hot weather. At the same time, it is a symbol of friendship, respect and good wishes. It is given to people in special occasions like opening and commemoration day of a store or company and also is very popular for wedding gifts. It is also an important stage prop for the Japanese dance 'Noh' performance. Unlike Uchiwa, Sensu are easier to carry around because it can be folded to make it more compact to carry. Many people carry Sensu when wearing 'Kimono' (traditional Japanese dress) and is still loved by people in Japan.
