Kamikoya Washi Studio and Boutique Accommodation
Rogier Uitenboogaart Master Washi Artist
Rogier is originally from The Netherlands and arrived in Japan in 1980 when he decided to journey to Japan to explore and discover the roots of paper making. After 40 years of living and dedicating his adult life to the art of washi making he has become the notable foreign master in this field.
Rogier moved around Japan to meet washi artists and ended up creating his life in the mountain area in Kochi Prefecture. Now you can find his strong presence within the town of Yusuhara where he has created a washi studio with a boutique house adjacent where people can stay.
You can find information on how to access the location, arrange a workshop and organize a very unique rural experience.
