What to Expect
Washi making is a Japanese traditional craft which is certified as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage. There are a number of places in Japan where you can make a simple washi, yet the experience offered here is quite unique and distinct as you can start from making raw materials for paper. Also, you can immerse yourself in paper making in the rich forest of Nishitama, Tokyo, while feeling the aroma of plants and refreshing breeze.

First of all, you will batter into fibers a kozo branch whose skin is already peeled and then soaked in water. This first phase of making fibers is pretty important in the whole process of making the craft work on the day. Moreover, you will feel the connection between the regional resources and the washi making, through loosening the fibers in the water beside the well in front of our atelier.

Next you will pour the washi fiber on to the toweling, wring water out of towel, and let the washi paper dry. The surface of the wash will get traces of pile fabric and gain an original texture with warm feeling. You can take the washi home and create your original craft work.

Then you will create a unique candle using the towel washi. Not an actual candle flame but a small LED lamp will be used. Make a stylish lamp shade with the towel washi, place it around an LED lamp, and a washi candle whose light flickers like a candle flame is completed.

Of course, you can take home your original craft work. Please enjoy an original experience of a traditional craft with a modern touch right here.

After the experience, we recommend you visit Tsuru-tsuru Onsen near the spot and have udon at Shogo-tei.
