房州うちわ

Boshu Rigid Fans

その他の工芸品

関東でうちわ作りが始ったのは江戸時代です。当時房州はうちわの材料となる竹の産地でした。房州でのうちわ作りは明治10年ごろからといわれており,明治17年(1884年)には安房郡の一大物産として生産されていたとのことです。

The making of rigid fans in the Kanto area centered on Edo (Tokyo), began sometime during the Edo period (1600-1868), when the nearby province of Boshu was producing quantities of bamboo for fans. The actual making of what has come to be known as the Boshu rigid fan, however, started sometime toward the end of the 1870s and by 1884, these fans were the biggest selling item produced in the area's Awa county.
