The company was founded in 1875. The company manufactures both handmade and machine-made paper, such as fusuma paper, original washi, and the only fusuma handmade paper in Japan, called “Danshi” paper (high-quality paper with creases). As for machine-made paper, we make a wide range of papers, such as “Torinoko”, colored paper, paper with patterns made by hand, and paper for art booths. We have a lot of experience in the interior decoration of hotels and shops. We strive to make Washi with a new sensibility added to traditional techniques.
