Abe Eishiro Memorial Museum

Let's try washi(Japanese paper) making!

Abe Eishiro Memorial Museum was founded in 1983 and is located in Matsue.
Eishiro Abe was designated as Preserver of an important intangible cultural property and better known as living national treasure .
It features about 250 types of peonies.
Upstream of Inugawa river,which is known as the home of tradition of washi papermaking and fireflies.
The river has clear water and the soil is ideal for growing raw materials of washi.
It is said that washi making started here in Edo period. 
However most of the papermakers closed down in Meiji period and only one was managed to survive due to machine-made papers.

Eishiro was devoted to washi making in his entire life.
The museum displays the history of washi as well as mingei craft.
Visitors can try washi making here.
