Experience Hall / Accommodation Experience (Training) Facility
With a long 1,500-year history and tradition, Echizen is the home of washi (Japanese paper) and of the Echizen Washi Village. This facility includes the “Paper & Culture Museum” —with lots of special, local washi products and history of Echizen washi—and the “Udatsu Paper & Craft Museum” —a reconstructed paper-making house where you can observe craftsman techniques firsthand. In the “Papyrus House,” you can try making washi paper, popular for toddlers and adults alike.
