Fodor's Review

Trek out to this paper museum to make your own postcards and browse the phenomenal gift shop, which stocks everything from sheets of softer-than-silk wrapping paper to peerless parasols. It's something of a pain to get to by train; the trip takes one hour to Awa-Yamakawa Station, then you walk 15 minutes to the hall. It's easier to rent a car and make the one-hour drive, especially if you are continuing on to the Iya Valley.
