In Japan, Kanzashi are hair ornaments used in traditional Japanese hairstyles. The term kanzashi is used for powerful magical items that are used to protect the wearer from bad spirits. They were later attached to thin sticks that could be easily carried or worn in hair. Now the term kanzashi refers to a wide variety of accessories, including long, rigid hairpins, barrettes, fabric flowers and fabric hair ties.
