Mino City Street lined with Udatsu4.0
Mino is the production site of the Mino washi paper which was registered as UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage in November 2014. The advanced paper making technology has been inherited in the rural villages since more than 1,300 years ago. During the Edo period, the Washi paper culture was cultivated in this special production area under the government protection, thus many wealthy merchants engaging in paper wholesale were born. To protect the gorgeous house, a symbol of wealth, from fire, rich owners installed Udatsu (a firewall built at the end of a roof) to their roofs.
