Kumano Town

Kumano Town is located in the western part of Hiroshima and is famous for making of fude(brushes).

This is Kumano Town’s mascot.

There is a Museum of Fude Art; Fude no Sato Kobo there.






This is the House of the Master Brush Maker.

You can see actual demonstrations of brush-making  there.

This is the world’s biggest brush.
 It is the WORLD BIGGEST BRUSH, but the Guinness world records did NOT accept sadly… the reason is that  ‘It is not different from a clean brush.’ ?!?!?!
I would like to say that, IT IS a Brush for Calligraphy!!!

After visiting Fude no Sato Kobo, I went to Houko-do to buy brushes for my students and me.
