【18. HOKUSAI / Folding fan / Blue】
Nishijin Kyoto silk handmade folding fan with Mt. Fuji and Cherry Blossom’s small figure pattern.
The highest quality folding fan inspired by Katsushika Hokusai, Japanese “Ukiyoe” artist. Hokusai is best known as author of the woodblock print series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji. Alongside Mount Fuji, another symbol for the beauty of Japan that Hokusai loved would be Japanese cherry blossoms. The folding fan with these delicate and beautiful two symbols would send balmy breeze.
