Round fan Maki

Sacred rites

Nara | Nara-shi

In the Kamakura period, an initiator, Daihi Bosatsu Kakujo said “Do not kill. Offering your blood is also a kind of Bodhisattva training” when his disciple was about to hit a mosquito. Respecting this virtue, people started dedicating gorgeous heart-shaped fans. This is said to be the beginning of this festival. It is said that illness and monsters will go away after receiving the fan.
