KAMI

Kami is the Japanese word meaning ‘god’, ‘divinity’, or ‘spirit’; but it also means ‘paper’.

 

Kami reside within nature. 

 

Kami move freely beyond time, universe and places, appearing during events, as well as in our houses and our bodies. These spirits also dwell in paper.

 

In the religion of Shinto, white paper is considered as a sacred material.
