The Hall of Awa Japanese Handmade Paper (阿波和紙伝統産業会館)

4.0

Other Factory Tour / Demonstration

The Hall of Awa Japanese Handmade Paper, just a 15-minute walk from the JR Awa Yamakawa Station, was constructed in May 1989 for the purpose of preserving the traditional craft of Awa Japanese Paper making. Awa Washi is soft Japanese paper made by using indigo dye, an art that has been transmitted for 1,300 years. Opportunities for watching washi-craftsmen working, as well as papermaking workshops are available to the public. Artwork studios are also made available to promote both local and international artists. Two exhibition rooms are open to the public, and available as art galleries.

山川町は、和紙産業が有名で阿波和紙の歴史と紙漉体験が学べれる施設なので勉強になり和紙の工程を深く理解する事ができました。*月曜日が休館日。
Reviewed:2017/02/01 大切に保存されている阿波和紙の文化です
近くを通ったので廻ってみました。入館料一般300円と書いてましたが、ショップと1Fの紙漉き作業見学は無料で、2F見学と紙漉き体験は有料です。阿波和紙の技術を地元の人たちと大切に保存している様子が見て取れます。

          The southeastern corner of Shikoku is home to Tokushima prefecture, a region celebrated for its luscious nature and the nation’s favorite Awa Odori, an energetic dance to which an annual summer festival has been dedicated. Keeping the upbeat tempo, whirlpools excite the Naruto sea off Tokushima, while inland, dramatic cliffs line the Iya Valley, promising unrivaled views of vast and vibrant scenery.
