I am from NOGATA, and Winter here is colder than where i am from.
I can not take off my scarf every day.

Well, today i would like to share the experience of making JAPANESE PAPER.

Current residence Mel, is from Macau, requests to do JAPANESE PAPER MAKING.
Well, why not!!!
SO, I and MIYAMOTO teacher(One of STUDIO KURA STAFF) including MEL, went to a studio「MEISHI KOBO MATSUO」in ONOJYO CITY, FUKUOKA.

A studio is open very quietly, where is surrounding by lots of houses.
Who will miss out this such a nice wood sign.

Even though we made a booking with such a short notice, he arranged it for us!!!
We are so appreciated his kindness.

The Owner is Masami Matsuo and his family owns also one of the famous Japanese paper studio in YAME.

We all could feel his enthusiasm for Japanese paper!

Normally, he design post card and business card by order with JAPANESE paper and make them.

Well, i am thinking of ordering my business card to him!!!!!!

And also we are both excited while exchanging the cards each other.
