From the images on display at the Miyama Washi Promotion and Research Center showing the making of Miyama paper during the forties of the Shōwa period we can see how a large group of people, the entire family, gathered to make paper, including steaming paper mulberry wood to peel the bark. Being recognized for its unchanging production technique since the Edo period (1603-1868), Miyama paper was designated an intangible cultural asset of Yamagata prefecture. Today, the very same traditional production technique continues to be used.
