RUGBY WORLD CUP™ PROUD HOST

Kyo Sensu, Kyo Uchiwa

A Sensu was used as a status symbol in aristocratic circles during the Heian period. An Uchiwa was brought from Korea to Kyoto via Kishu-Yamato in the period of the Northern and Southern Dynasties (1337?1392). Kyo Sensu and Uchiwa are both representative objects of Kyoto craftwork. They are both utility articles yet have a charm as works of art as well.
