Washi Kin-Kaku-Den Super White A4 50Sheets
In the fall of 2018, the manufacturer of Kin Kaku Den, Sakamoto Paper Industries, decided to close their operations. Sakamoto Paper Industries had a long history of making paper by hand before they switched to mechanized paper production in the 1960s. Kin Kaku Den was a paper they developed through extensive trial-and-error with the goal to create Washi paper suitable for offset printing. The name was inspired by the glimmering light reflected off of the main hall of the temple. Kin Kaku Den was commonly used in letter sets and for prayer writing by Buddhist monks. It is also used by the Ino Washi Museum for their pamphlets and entry tickets. Unfortunately they decided to cease operations due to the retirement of their paper master and the aging of their equipment which made maintenance difficult.

I don't know for what Japanese people use this paper but its really nice to write on. It's unusual high quality paper and fountain pen friendly. I have never seen such kind of paper before. I really like this and I was amazed how beautifully my order was packed. Thousands of thanks.
Exquisite paper. Beautifully packed. The seller made sure to get all my information before sending. Would not hesitate to buy again.
