This shop is located on the first floor of the shopping district "Rakuichi Nene" in front of the Kodaiji temple. Multi-colored accessories made of Japanese paper are sold here. Many of the accessories here are practical, and are great not only as gifts, but for use in daily life. With its proximity to the “Nene no michi” sightseeing spot, we hope you’ll visit this shop during one of your strolls.

Washi for folding into chopstick holders. Folding instructions are available through samples which are given upon purchase. Because the ink used to color these washi are made with soy products, they are safe even in the unlikely event that you ingest them.
