Let's visit Ogawamachi to make your own Washi paper (traditional Japanese paper) and visit a historical sake brewery.

On this tour, your English speaking tour assistant will meet you at the lobby of your accommodation in Tokyo or at Ogawamachi station (Tobu Tojo line).

Ogawamachi is in the west area of Saitama prefecture, and is known for its traditional Japanese washi paper industry. During the Edo period, as the number of residents and merchants increased so did the consumption of paper in Ogawamachi. Hosokawa-shi flourished in this area, producing high quality paper for many purposes, from religious scripts, architectural purposes, to fans and umbrellas.

The key ingredients to making great sake is using high quality rice and water. The water used at the sake brewery you will visit is pumped from 130 metres underground. You will get a free taste of this water as well as a free sake tasting as part of the guided tour! 

You will first visit a local Hosokawa-shi workshop in Ogawamachi, where you will meet a Master of Hosokawa-shi making, designated by the Prefectural Government of Saitama. The history of washi craftsmanship in this Ogawamachi area dates back to the 8th century, and later it prospered as a specialty place for washi craftsmanship. At the workshop, you will learn how traditional washi paper is made through a guided demonstration tour. Then, you will be able to experience making your own washi paper using traditional tools and materials! Durability is a major feature of Hosokawa-shi paper. 

You will then have lunch at the nearby Yasuragi Peace House (10 mins from Washi place), a rural village house a that is more than 100 years old, serving various hand-made udon noodle dishes!

After a delicious lunch, you will head to the Matsuoka Sake Brewery, established in 1851. You will be taken on a guided tour around the brewery and learn about the sake brewing process. You will have the chance to taste the “mother water” of the sake, in this brewery the water used to make the sake is pumped from 130 metres deep underground.

There are also non-alcoholic products such as the popular Daiginjo ice-cream.

You will then return to the Hosokawa-shi workshop to pick up the dried washi paper you made earlier! Size is about 30cm x 45cm. The tour will conclude at Kawagoe station; however, you are free to wander around Kawagoe.

Regarding the establishment of the Ashikaga School, the record is unknown, but since the centuries ago we have continued to disseminate academic disciplines centered on the teachings of Confucianism, and the Ashikaga school continued as a center of Confucianism and academics to educate nurturing minds that respect Japanese morals and courtesies. It is said that students who gathered from various places continued learning until they were fully satisfied under the frees school environment. The importance of continuing learning in the spirit of self-study is becoming the starting point of modern school education.
The existence of the Ashikaga school has become a driving force for obtaining high educational standards from the former rulers to many commoners, from reading and writing and arithmetic to manners.
