There's more to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics Kumi Ichimatsu Fans than meets the eye. What you see first are two beautiful paper folding fans, with bamboo ribs and white on blue geometric patterns and the Tokyo 2020 Olympics or Paralympics insignia and logo on one side. These alone make these fans one a classic and characteristically Japanese item among the Games official merchandise. They are also great gift choices with their classy paulownia wood boxes and display stands.
What you perhaps don't initially see, though, are the details behind the two Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics Kumi Ichimatsu Fans. For example, that the paper isn't just any paper but hoshokami paper made from mulberry wood and considered to be among the highest quality paper in Japan. Or that the geometrical patterns have been created by Asao Tokolo, the man who created the actual logo for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games and they are special variations called Hanafubuki (Flower Storm) and Enjin (Harmonized Formation). More than a traditional way to cool yourself, these fans are true works of art worth a prominent spot in any Japan-related collection!
