Description
 
This is an uchiwa - flat paddle fan - that comes from the Gion area of Kyoto.

It's an oversized uchiwa - 15" long and 10" across - but perfect for fanning the humid summer air in Kyoto.

The design is of two family crests - tomoe in blue and melon in red - and the black lettering indicates it is from "Gion". Perhaps this was a souvenir from the annual Gion Masturi (Gion Festival)?

Bamboo handle. Backside is plain.

Some sighs of age and use but still in great condition.
