Enjoying Mai, The Traditional Japanese Dance – Feeling the spirit of Japanese folding fans for Noh plays

Walking down Karasuma-dori in Kyoto, you can find the sign that reads in Japanese, “Tomatsuya-Fukui, Folding Fan Specialty Shop – The purveyor to the head families”. The head families of Noh schools have been placing a lot of importance on the significance and dignity of folding fans for Noh plays, and no one can describe the fans without knowing this shop. Established in 1703, the shop has continued its craftsmanship as a supplier of mai-ogi, a folding fan for Noh plays, for Kanze style. Now, the shop is completely trusted and supported by the head families of each school. Much like before, the owners of the shop continue to take charge of making the fans themselves, and pass on their techniques and passion of making fans from father to son. During this session, you can experience the wonderful world of the well-honed beauty of mai, one of the traditional Japanese dances, along with the precious stories of Mr. Yoshihide FUKUI, the present shop owner.
