Washi Festival 2018 is being held in Higashichichibu!


Washi is known as traditional Japanese paper. Recently, a type of washi called “Hosokawagami”, which is produced locally, succeeded in its registration as an intangible cultural heritage with UNESCO. Here in Higashichichibu Washi no Sato, various events using washi will be taking place, offering you the opportunity to take part in the experience or observe the art of paper making.

Enjoy the whole experience of washi in this specialized hands-on event for participants!

Be wrapped in the dreamy atmosphere produced by the tender light of washi.
