Use paper from the last remaining Yanagiu Washi paper mill to make a collage candle lit with an LED.

The gentle texture of handmade Japanese paper with so much history, combined with a subtle glow resembling a candle, creates an atmospheric LED candle light. Yanagiu Washi is also perfect to create your own mini Tanabata decorations. This experience is ideal as a souvenir and memory of your Sendai sightseeing trip!

You can see kokeshi dolls and various crafts from Miyagi and Tohoku. We specialize in kokeshi and Sendai crafts, and also carry limited goods only available at Shimanuki. Please enjoy both shopping and your experience together.
