When the Paper Museum first opened in Oji, Tokyo in 1950, it was built on the same ground where Japan's first manufacturer of Western-style paper stood. Later moved to Asukayama Park, the museum continues to celebrate the history, charm and versatility of paper.
You can reach the museum by train and a short walk.
The Paper Museum is a five-minute walk from Oji Station on the JR Keihin-Tohoku Line and Tokyo Metro Namboku Line.
The museum has four stories. The first floor has a library, a video corner and an outdoor garden. The second floor has a gallery that teaches guests about recycling while the third floor has a rich collection that shows the history of paper. Special exhibits are also held on the fourth floor throughout the year.
