The 8th NeedsArch (NA) "Ozu Washi Making, Museum Tour, and Group Interview" was held on Saturday, September 24th 2016 in Nihonabshi. 
It might have been a bit challenging to make a sheet of Washi paper using a traditional bamboo mat, but it was good that everyone succeeded at the end!
The purpose of group interview is For product (souvenir) development.
Cool Japan Souvenir Society (CJSS) will introduce Japanese souvenirs and plan tour guides for foreign tourists visiting Japan so they have a group interview to get some information about souvenir, shopping, tour plan in Japan and so on.
