History of Ogi (Fan)
The beginning of the Ogi is thought to be the beginning of the Heian period (around the 9th century) with a thin wooden board connected to form a fan.
After the hinoki cypress board used for ceremonies, a fan made of bamboo and paper (Kamisen) was exported to China around the 10th century. Later, it was introduced to Europe and reimported to Japan, where the silk fan (Kinusen) was born. In modern times, there are summer fans and silk fans for everyday use, as well as fans specifically for Nohgaku, dance, tea ceremony, and celebrations.
