It is a good product not only for your own use and souvenirs, but also for gifts.
Permanent display and sale of Japanese paper lighting fixtures are conducted. Even though Japanese paper lighting fixtures are used, there are rectangular, cylindrical, and hemispherical ones. And even if light, there are things that come out dimly, glare, and things that warm and ooze out. There is a wide variety of washi paper covering the light, such as fine-grained ones, boldly coarsely-grounded ones, and ones that are ground with maple, to suit the living space and lifestyle. The view of the art gallery where such lighting fixtures are lined up is narrowly spectacular. Please stop by.
