Our study tour to Takefu knife village and Washi no sato

We visited both Takefu Knife Village and Echizen Washi village.

At Knife village, we learned about the process for manufacturing excellent Takefu knives. Also we got explanation about the history of this traditional craft.

After that we moved to Papyrus-kan at washi no sato (Washi village) .  They allowed us to try making washi paper. We could bring it home after completing overall process. It was such a great experience to learn more about our culture.
