In the "Washi Kougei-kan", a 10min-film (in English) is projected that describes the manufacture of traditional washi paper, an activity common to all the local communities for centuries. This work provided them with a non-negligible source of income over the winter and also found a use for the bark of the blackberry tree. You can take part in a paper manufacturing workshop (in English) in the "Washi Taiken-kan".
