The most recent quirky invention from Japan is the 'Shinsengumi Cooling Aroma Fan.' This take on traditional Japanese fans is the perfect tool to keep you cool when it gets far too hot to bare.

This fan is not your average hand-held cooling device; when chilled with water in the fridge or freezer for approximately 20 minutes, the fan starts a vaporization process that naturally produces a cooling effect. The best part about the Shinsengumi Cooling Aroma Fan is that it does not required any batteries to operate, and you can add a drop of aroma oil to the tip of the handle for an added wafting sensory experience.

Available in three different colors and patterns: black with a windmill design, blue with morning glory flowers or pink with goldfish.
