Kyoto is beautiful in all the 4 seasons. It has been 145 years since KANAMEAN NISHITOMIYA was established. Our philosophy is based on the teachings of ONKO – CHISHIN (the pursuit of new knowledge through studying what happened in the past, and learn from the ancient knowledge of wise men) ever since our establishment.
KANAMEAN NISHITOMIYA is located on Tominokouji street. This area is called Honeyanocho, where many artisans have been making their livelihood by creating fans for centuries. Even now there are famous fan-shoｐｓ (like Miyawaki-Baisendo) which have been passed from generation to generation.
