Narushima is the northern end place of Washi making in Japan. Although there are more than 1000 years of history, it was almost disappeared recently. To keep the tradition, the local government built the Washi making facility and invited the Aoki family who had long local Washi making history. They have no big production, but the paper using local Kozo with Noriutsugi from the mountains is purely beautiful paper based on their tradition.
