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." (This program was broadcast on September 1, 2022.)
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."
