Shoji paper is a tough, translucent paper made of wood fibers. The fibers of washi paper are longer than printing paper, giving it durability despite its thinness and ensuring its longevity. These days, it is used in the repair of cultural assets all over the world, with its strength said to last for 1000 years or more. Washi papermaking began in Mino in the ancient Nara era. Although the culture of washi papermaking exists all over Japan, washi paper from Mino is praised for its quality and durability, earning the shogunate’s endorsement during the Edo era, and it has become a firm favorite.
