Uchiyama Japanese paper A craft passed down for 400 years
Uchiyama Paper is one of Iiyama's traditional industrial arts. The craft, developed and passed down for more than 400 years, uses only all-natural mulberry tree fibers. This produces Japanese paper known for its natural durability and beauty. In a process called "Yuki-zarashi," Uchiyama paper is spread across snow banks to dry in the sun, giving it a distinctive white color. The experts who make this paper also know the tricks to create an even, smooth finish. High-quality Uchiyama paper is traditionally used for Japanese sliding paper doors and other paper products.
