Kumano brush comes in a variety of styles and each requires the many steps mentioned before. A user of a Kumano brush can choose the right brush according to his/her preference in writing, painting, or using it in various crafts. Famous Japanese artists like Munakata Shikō, Uemura Wadō, Uno Sesson, and Sakaki Bakuzan all favored the use of Kumano brush. At Fude No Sato Kobo, a museum of brushes in Kumano town, visitors can learn about the history of the fude brush and how it is made through displays. The museum has an exhibition room dedicated to the Kimura Yōzan Collection — the biggest and best collection of brushes in the world — and a museum shop where you can try out and buy brushes.
