Lacquer Filter Paper (Hon-Yoshino-kami, Shin-Yoshino kami)

Hon-Yoshino paper is made in the Yoshino region of Nara prefecture, and is an ultra-thin yet tenacious Japanese tissue. It is suitable for filtering lacquer and oil, and what is currently produced in only Kubogaito, Yoshino Town has been handed down as an essential technique for preserving ancient cultural properties. The manufacturing method is similar to that of Honmisu paper, which is made in the same Yoshino, but the feature is that the seashell power is not mixed in the paper material and is applied to the dried wooden plate. Nowadays, Shin-Yoshino paper, which uses chemical fibers, is widely used because of its good price, durability and strength.
