Stripping of Kozo Bark…
The time of the year has come again where the people of Ino-machi gather for the annual stripping of kozo bark.
The past blog post can be found here.
Many thanks to Mr. Hiroyoshi Chinzei, who provided us with wonderful photos!
This important process is absolutely necessary to make high quality Japanese papers.
It’s also an excellent way for people of Ino-machi to come together, and celebrate the start of the new year!
