We learned how to make our own paper in Kyoto and found ourselves while doing it

For a few years now, the term “slow living” has been a bit overused if you want to indulge in an attitude to life that is opposite to the hurried and stressful daily routine and says that you should concentrate on your own existence again. Cooking with organic products. Breathe slowly. Go hiking in the woods.

Japan itself is a country of extreme contrasts. Epic technical advances on the one hand collide with the gentle and quite loving way of life of the Japanese in general. Old temples, small parks and a few ghosts, which don’t always have to be evil, are hidden between the skyscrapers and neon lights.

In Kyoto, Yuriko Rico Ogura showed us how we can make our own paper. If that is not “slow living” in its purest form, then I don’t know what it. With a lot of patience and caution, the pulp is first prepared in a tub full of water and then the paper is scooped out of it with a grid frame and a cloth. Very relaxing.
