Ileda Ganko-do池田含香堂

4.0

Souvenirs

A long-standing shop, Ikeda Ganko-do is the only shop to still make Nara Uchiwa fans, a traditional craft passed down since the Nara period. The shop is located in Tsunofuri Town, Nara City, Nara Prefecture. Nara Uchiwa are made by combining 20 sheets of Japanese washi paper and are characterized by the use of “sukashibori,” a technique in which a design is cut into the fan paper using tiny knives. The shop carries over 100 designs such as famous Nara sights; the delicate designs cut into the fans make them veritable works of art. In addition to selling Nara Uchiwa and Nara Sensu folding fans, the shop also holds reservation only classes in which participants can try making their own Nara Uchiwa.

三条通りにある、奈良うちわと奈良扇子の老舗。奈良うちわ、は透かしのあるうちわで、形も天平の時代をほうふつさせます。ショーウインドウには、隣の人間国宝さん、のステッカーも飾られています。

奈良県の伝統的工芸品に指定されている「奈良団扇」づくりを見学/体験することのできる唯一の場所です。
「奈良団扇」は、”透し彫り”の施された大変美しい団扇で、その仕上がりの繊細さには、長い伝統を守って来られた職人の方々の「気概(見る人を惹きつける力)」を感じました。
それほどに「とてもスゴイ団扇」なのですが、丁寧に且つ分かり易くその作り方を教えて下さるので、楽しく体験ができました。
作った団扇が自宅...

          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture's treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains' Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
