Papercraft in Iiyama
A delicate craft imbued with tradition and purpose
Iiyama City in Nagano Prefecture’s far north has nurtured an artistic tradition for over 350 years. Uchiyama style “washi” paper is made from wood fiber, making it durable enough to keep out the cold of the frigid Nagano winters. Try your hand at papermaking and create your own postcard adorned with wildflowers.
