Paper Museum

Tokyo, Kanto

The Paper Museum was opened in 1950 in Oji, Kita-ku, Tokyo, where the first western-style paper manufacturer, the Oji Paper Manufacturing Company, was established. Based on the Companys original collection, the museum preserves and exhibits a wide range of paper and paper-related items and also conducts educational activities. In its three exhibit rooms, visitors can learn about the paper manufacturing industry and the history of paper around the world, and can participate in workshops in paper making. Its library has approximately 8,000 books and other documents on paper, and these are open for public use.’
