Art, history, and hands-on fun at Oji Paper Museum

Oji’s Paper Museum is a gallery and workshop space dedicated to the history and everyday use of paper in Japan. The museum is home to a number of exhibition spaces, library, event hall, workshop, and gift store. If you’re traveling with kids, spend some time on the third floor exploring the interactive and educational displays, before heading up to the top level to learn all about the history of washi, traditional Japanese paper.

If you visit on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, you can try making your own washi-style paper from recycled milk cartons. The papermaking workshop is free with admission and is suitable for guests of all ages.
