Otake Washi Workshop is a washi (Japanese-style paper) producer located in Otake City, next to Hatsukaichi City, where Miyajima is located. Otake City has had a thriving washi-making industry for about 400 years and is famous for its handmade “Tesuki Washi.” The Otake Washi Workshop sells washi individually handmade by craftsmen, and sells washi letter-sets as well. At different times, the washi-making process is open to the general public, and you can try your hand in making washi yourself.
