Kumano Virtual Fudematsuri 2020!


Kumano Virtual Fudematsuri 2020!
We're moving online!
Although we have cancelled our in-person “Fudematsuri” this year, we are instead having a “Virtual Fudematsuri 2020” online from September 22 (Tue) to September 27 (Sun), 2020.
In the Virtual Fudematsuri 2020, there will be lots online events, including the “Fudekuyou”, the “Fudenoichi”, and others!
The “Fudekuyou" (brush memorial service) is a Shinto ritual which shows gratitude to the brushes which are worn out and finished their roles, as well as to the animals who provided hair for them, and we throw brushes in a holy fire for this memorial service.
The “Fudenoichi" is a brush market where 25 brush manufacturers in Kumano will sell their brushes (and other items) on sale, with up to 40% off only for this period.
Our company will sell our brushes and the others at the "Fudenoichi."
We will also have a live online demonstration of how to make brushes during the festival, as well as other live events. More details to come!
We will open our English website around September 15, 2020. Please check it out!
Please come and join us at Kumano Virtual Fudematsuri 2020!
