Occupying a blessed patch of land, a wet valley irrigated by the Nagara River and the Itadori River, Mino was a center of agriculture and manufacturing, home to the famed Mino washi. Today, the old homes of the washi wholesalers have been preserved, and reborn to house artisans’ workshops, tidy cafes, and homey restaurants. This was once a town of more than modest wealth, built on the backbreaking work of laborers in washi workshops fed by the ice cold mountain streams. The pace is slower now, but the town is still lively—and a great place to pick up washi products.
