Putting the Power of Nature on Paper
Workpedia Japan focuses on the lives of foreign nationals working in Japan. On this episode, we visit Kochi Prefecture, where Dutch-born Rogier Uitenboogaart makes traditional Japanese paper, or "washi."
Rogier Uitenboogaart first came to Japan in 1980. He pursues the traditional and environmentally-friendly way of making "washi."
Rogier shows us some "kozo," the main ingredient in making "washi."
