Shiyuen (紀州高野紙伝承体験資料館 紙遊苑)

3.5

Museum / Science Museum

A museum which introduces the traditions and techniques of Koyagami, a type of handmade Japanese washi paper whose method of production is said to have been taught to the residents of Kudoyama Town by the great monk Kukai. The museum is located northwest of the roadside station Kaki no Sato Kudoyama next to the Shori-ji Temple. Museum exhibits include a diorama which shows what Koyagami paper production in the area once looked like at its peak, as well as various items made from Koyagami such as Japanese kites, shoji paper doors, raincoats, and lanterns. With an advance reservation, visitors can also try making some Koyagami themselves, ranging in size from that of a postcard to around an A3 sheet of paper.

Reviewed:2019/07/13 紙漉き体験ができます。
紙の原料のコウゾから紙漉き体験ができます。町営で昔は150件の紙すき職人がいたことを聞きました。伝統技術の伝承は課題を改めて認識しました。

手漉き和紙の作り方を知ることができます。体験伝承施設らしいのですが、展示品を見るだけでも、当時の技術を知ることができます。

急な石段を上がったところ勝利寺の境内にあります。紙の作り方のパネルやミニュチュア、紙すきの道具などが展示されていました。

          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country’s most delicious ramen noodles.
