Vol. 13 Captivating Craftworks

Japan is home to an extensive range of flourishing craft industries. Among many of the excellent traditional crafts developed in their own distinctive ways all over Japan, we introduce high-style metalware, elegant glassware, finely crafted blades, charming traditional toys, and ceremonial mizuhiki decorations.

Vol. 14 Devoted to Paper

Since the introduction of papermaking techniques from continental Asia, Japan has developed its own original paper culture which has been deeply rooted in many aspects of the Japanese lifestyle. We invite you to explore the unique world of Japanese paper from traditional washi papermaking to Ukiyo-e, Japanese pop art printed on washi paper, and innovative paper stationery.
