Several cities in Gifu Prefecture are collaborating to create “Made in Gifu” andon lanterns that showcase special crafts dear to each one, from Mino’s Honminoshi paper products to the Tono region’s Minoyaki pottery, used to make the base.

They are also hoping to market the lanterns products abroad, especially since Honminoshi, a traditional paper-making art, was recently added to UNESCO’s list of intangible cultural heritage.
