Excellent Japanese traditional paper and original paper items

Kamiji Kakimoto is a Japanese paper store that dates back to the late Edo period (1600-1868), and is located on the quaint Teramachi Street near the Kyoto City Hall. They offer Japanese kizuki-gami (paper made only from the bark of trees), yuzen paper (traditional unique handmade paper) and many other kinds of paper.  Even western style paper is also available by ordering from one sheet. The original items ‘Tezome-kaishi (hand-dyed Japanese paper)’ (788 yen for 10 pieces), seasonal writing paper (735 yen for 8 pieces) are also popular. The photo (an image) shown is ‘Pattern paper of blue maple’ (368 yen), which is used for decorating letter pads and kaishi (a small piece of paper).
