The Medieval Fan Game – Tosenkyo

29 October 2013, London

Tosenkyo is a medieval Japanese fan game enjoyed by the nobility and is still played today. During this special evening, guests will learn about Ishizumi & Co Fans, a bespoke fan company, the history, rules and variations surrounding the fan game of Tosenkyo and, at the end, have a chance to try playing the game.


There will be fans from Ishizumi & Co for sale at the end of the evening. This event also includes the usual optional tour of the Hall. The Japan Society will handle registration and no tickets will be issued.
