The Essential
Mino is a historical town, as elegant as the washi paper thanks to which it flourished. It was on this traditional paper that Buddhist calligraphies were originally written. The paper is handmade, generally using mulberry leaves, in beautiful colours or embellished with petals. Find out more at the dedicated museum in the Imai House, which is decorated with superb udatsu (earthenware ornaments). Enjoy a stroll around the historical centre (17C), with its merchant houses, each more beautiful than the next.
