“Washi” is Japanese traditional paper which is designated an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. Washi paper is tough, long-lasting and it feels really nice.
In this workshop surrounded by nature, we can learn how to make washi papers from scratch and make handmade craftworks.
There is a field where “kouzo”, a material of washi papers, grown wild and a water well which they pump water from to make washi papers.
We can also enjoy walking around and having lunch and moreover listening to “Gagaku”, an ancient ceremonial music, performance.
