Echizen's most famous washi paper. Hosho was originally used to communicate opinions and decisions among the emperor and shoguns. Today, it has transformed its use to woodlblock printing and calligraphy paper. 

The Kizuki Hosho in particular, made by living national treasure Ichibei Iwano, is the premier washi of Echizen. 

100% Japanese Kozo of the highest grade from Ibaraki Prefecture.
With a smoother texture than other Hosho papers.

*Kizuki means 100% kozo paper made by traditional Japanese papermaking methods. Another Kizuki washi of ours is "Usu Mino"
