Ino-Cho Paper Museumいの町紙の博物館

Museum / Science Museum

The Ino-Cho Paper Museum is a specialist paper museum located approximately 10 minutes’ walk from Ino Station (on the JR Dosan Line). The Museum was opened in 1985 with the aim of helping to revitalize the production of Tosa Washi (Tosa traditional handmade paper), one of Japan’s traditional handicrafts. The permanent exhibitions include displays on the history of Washi traditional paper, the related cultural traditions, the materials and tools used to make Washi paper, etc. There are also papermaking demonstrations and opportunities to try your hand at making paper yourself. Special exhibitions are held on ongoing basis. It costs 400 yen to have a go at making two sheets of colored paper or eight postcards in the Papermaking Experience Corner. The papermaking experience activity takes around one hour; groups of 10 or more people are requested to book in advance.

          Kochi Main Areas


          The largest of Shikoku’s prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island’s most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you’re a pilgrim or not, Kochi’s 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
