Hand-made Tradition

Washi, our traditional hand-made paper, was added to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list. Three kinds of washi are included: Hosokawashi from Saitama, Honminoshi, Gifu and Sekishubanshi, Shimane.

14th WCH in Japan

The World Heritage Committee adopted a resolution that decides to inscribe Tomioka Silk Mill and Related Site on the World Cultural Heritage list.
