The PAPER NAO shop in Tokyo will provide you with samples and
technical data (way of cooking the pulp, way of drying the sheet,
pH-value etc.) on their wide range of japanese papers. The have both
handmade and machinemade papers, if you're especially after tissues,
the RK series of machinemade paper offer you many choices, from a
weight of 4 g/m2 and up. Except from paper for restoration, Paper
Nao also sells nice brushes, artist's paper, etc.

The address is:

By the way, I think there was a test on the Paper Nao papers in the
latest issue of the German-language Restauro
