When these incredibly thin sheets are formed, the vigorous shaking of the paper making mould causes the water to dance splendidly. In the past, hundreds of people made Tengucho. However today there is only one family that can create it. This papermaking tradition has been handed down from Saijo Hamada, the national living treasure, to his grandson, Hironao Hamada, the 4th generation.

Tengujo is also another term for Tengucho.
