Experience Washi (Japanese Paper) Making

The word "washi" comes from [Wa] 'Japanese' and [Shi] 'paper', and the term is used to describe paper made by hand in the traditional manner. Washi is generally tougher than ordinary paper made from wood pulp, and is used in many traditional arts like Origami, Shodo, and Ukiyoe. Since the Edo period it has been used in large amounts for anything from building supplies, clothes and bedding. Even today it is used as a material for making Japanese paper money.

One of the few paper makers in all of Japan to use natural trees lives in Yamagata. In seek of pure water and plentiful forests for making Japanese paper, he moved to Yamagata and is now living and working as a professional Japanese paper-maker. With our program, you will receive a lecture and make original “washi” with Japans best paper maker Mr. Miura.
