Living with Mino Washi and inheriting its tradition

Mino, a city surrounded by mountains and the clear waters of the Nagara River, is famous for making traditional Japanese paper(washi).
Located in the historical ly symbolic Kawaminato neighborhood, Daifuku Paper operates day and night.
Our precious , unchanging dut y is to safeguard and utilize the traditions and techniques of Mino washi (paper) while infusing traditional Japanese paper with new, never-before-seen functionality. We are committed to the Shuhari principle of respecting tradition while breaking away from stereotypes.
