Where you'll be

We will meet at my paper shop in the heart of Kyoto. It's a traditional Japanese wooden house, where you will be able to feel at home on tatami mats. There're paper products collected from various parts of Japan, as well as raw ingredients for Washi paper and other tools to make papers. After all, you will be able to mail the handmade postcards or bring back with you as souvenirs.
