SH- Shūso Shi

In the 1830s, Mr Tanaka Sahei trained Washi making method in Tosa and brought it back to the village. Generally, Washi production place is located in deep mountains. However, this place is placed in Shūso plains. Because they can use the rich underground water from Shikoku mountains.
The Dan-shi (檀紙), which is a unique and beautiful crinkled paper, like corduroy surface, is usually used for the ceremony envelope. Hand-made Danshi is really rare nowadays. Shūso is one of the biggest Danshi producing place.
