This folding fan has a calligraphy inscription by Hane Naoki 9p.
While it can be translated as Innocence or Pure Heart, Miseon-Namu of reddit notes that it has a long tradition:
This is a quote from the Analects where Confucius describes the Book of Poetry, the classic of ancient Chinese poetry.
The Master said, "In the Book of Poetry are three hundred pieces, but the essence of them all may be embraced in one sentence - 'Having no depraved thoughts.'"
Hopefully this will at least help you keep cool, which is a good start towards a peaceful mind!
