About this sight

The town of Mino is well known for its paper (washi) making skill that has been passed down for many generations. Washi is a type of handmade Japanese paper that is made from the bark of trees or shrubs, dubbed one of UNESCO’s Intangible cultural heritage objects in 2014. The Former Imai Family Residence is noted to be where the Washi paper wholesaler, whom also served as the village headsman, lived from the end of the Edo period to 1941.
