Haigyu district in Naka Town is famous for ”Farming Village Theater”. About 400m up in the mountain, in the past, most of the households were engaged in paper making. NPO ”Awa Farming Village Theater ”renovated Imoto Paper Mill, which has its reminiscence of about 60 years’ past, and turned it into experience facility. Stepping out of the building, terraced rice fields and rivers are stretching in the mountainous area. You are sure to be satisfied with the warm touch of Awa Paper made from ”Kouzo”paper mulberry following Mr. Imoto’s direction and feel the sense of achievement when you made your handmade paper. If you go further, you can apply it for grass tree dyeing and make lamp shade by the paper.
