Fudenosato Kobo Brush Museum

Kumano brushes, traditional handicrafts with a 180 year history that make up some 80% of all domestic production. Fudenosato Kobo is a brush museum where you can see, touch, and experience all the artistry, craftsmanship, and fun that goes into brush making. Inside you'll find the world's largest brush (at 3.7m long), permanent displays that trace the transition of Japanese culture through the history of the brush, traditional brush making demonstrations, various opportunities to use brushes, and special planned exhibitions held by nationally famous calligraphers throughout the year. We want visitors to freely enjoy the world of brushes. There is also a select Kumano brush gift shop featuring brushes for writing, drawing, and cosmetics made by 32 companies located in Kumano. Visitors can pick up any of the 1,500 brushes and test them out before making their selection.
