Story & Recommendation
A range of beautiful and practical items made from lovely washi paper
This is a Japanese paper goods shop located inside the Museum of Kyoto. We recommend the accessories and stationery made from traditionally crafted Japanese washi paper. You will find a plethora of items that make use of washi’s unique texture and beautiful color. Not only are these items exquisitely designed, but many of them are highly practical and useful for everyday purposes. Since they make use of Japanese-style illustrations and patterns, they will also make beautiful souvenirs that their recipients are sure to love.
