Japan is known the world over for its beautifully decorative handheld accordion-like fans. These fans have deep connections with the DNA of Japanese life from religious festivals and daily life to performances and games. The Suntory Museum of Art is currently hosting a quirky exhibition about Japanese fans which represent the concept of “art in life.” “In the Country of Fans,” then, is a great chance to see, first hand, some of these beautiful fans and design up close.
