Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

At this longstanding store and cultural centre, you can discover the beauty of Japanese washi paper – and try making it yourself. The first floor houses a tea shop where you can stock up on paper and calligraphy goods, and the Washi Experience Studio, where you can learn how to make washi paper at its frequent workshops.

The second floor gallery space hosts weekly exhibitions and guest washi craftsmen from around Japan, plus the Ozu Culture School, where serious students can sign up for a variety of classes. Finally, the third floor houses the informative Ozu History Museum, which details the many types of washi from various Japanese regions. Information is available in English and you can touch and feel the different types of paper. The washi-making workshop takes an hour, and you can bring your paper home with you on the same day.

Various workshops available. Washi-making classes ¥500 for one A4 sheet of paper; private lessons also available at ¥3,500 each. Workshop time and reservations can be made here, or email studio@ozuwashi.net. Drop-ins possible depending on availability.
