What is Tosa Hakkinshi?
Tosa Hakkinshi, a high-quality Japanese washi paper for platinum prints, has a gentle and elegant texture unique to Kozo paper mulberry and can withstand long-term storage. It retains the performance and permanence of conventional platinum prints, which are characterized by soft and beautiful tonal gradations and high preservation.

Tosa Hakkinshi" originated from the idea of focusing on the preservation of washi, which is said to last for 1,000 years as a support material. It was newly developed in 2013 through a process of thought and error by Satoru Yoshioka, a resident of Kochi, Ayako Yoshioka, a designer who has widely introduced the appeal of Tosa Washi, a group of young paper makers from Ino-cho, "Tosa no Yama, Paper Resource Association," and Masayuki Nishimaru of Photo Gallery International, who is also active as a photography technician. This is a Japanese paper for platinum prints.

*Ino-cho has been famous for its washi since ancient times.
