Different types of paper feel very different. Texture and touch add to each paper’s character and distinctiveness.
In Japanese, these properties are often expressed using onomatopoeia,
such as zara-zara (rough), tsuru-tsuru (glossy), and pari-pari (crispy).
 
This event highlights five characteristics of paper, expressed in Japanese onomatopoeia as
zara-zara (rough), shittori (moist), kira-kira (shiny), pari-pari (crispy), and fuwa-fuwa (fluffy) .
Come and feel different types of paper for yourself, and explore their textures.
Paper products and assorted A4 papers with these characteristics are also available.
The same paper can feel differently to different people.
How does each sheet feel to you? Rough? Moist? Shiny? Crispy? Fluffy?
