Aoya Washi Studio (Inshu Washi Paper)
The origins of Inshu "washi" paper are uncertain, but their appearance in the "Engishiki," an ancient Japanese legal text written over 1,000 years ago, suggests it has existed since at least 1,300 years ago, during the Heian Period. The paper is well-known across Japan for its use in calligraphy. This innovative studio explores new uses and artistic applications for washi paper. Visitors can also press their own paper here.
