Description
A display of traditional Japanese fans on sale in Tokyo

The Akomeogi (or Japanese folding fan; 衵扇; Hiōgi) originated in the 6th century.

Japanese fans are made of paper on a bamboo frame, usually with a design painted on them. The fan is primarily used for fanning oneself in hot weather.
The fan symbolizes friendship, respect and good wishes. It is a gift that is given to people on special occasions, and it is also an important stage prop for the Japanese dance performances.
