Recommended merchandise

KINPAKU
This conventional pure gold leaf is 24 karats and is supreme quality that will never loose its shine.

HON-FURUYA
The special Honfuruya paper has a very smooth surface and absorbs oils very effectively and has been long used by Maiko (apprentice geisha) in Japan. Genuine Honfuruya paper is a by-product only produced during the process of gilt manufacturing, therefore, it cannot be mass produced. Presently, many of the oil blotting paper manufacturers try to create their products taking after the valued Honfuruya paper. Why not try the authentic Honfuruya Paper that fascinated many Maiko throughout history when you have the chance.
