  • Kanzokashiki Washi Japanese Papermaking

Kanzokashiki is the winter tradition of Toyota City's Obara area. So, what is it? Kanzokashiki is a process in Japanese papermaking where paper mulberry is steamed, then stripped of the outer bark until only the tough pliant inner bark is left—the raw material which will afterwards be cleaned, pounded, and stretched.
Anyone is free to join, so come and experience it for yourself.
