The answer in this list is kozo paper. However, it is usually called washi paper, like the paper tape used for scrapbooking and crafts today. These paper scenes were then pasted onto a block of wood. In Japan, it was mainly cherry wood that was used for wood block art. The wood art was often carved onto the plate backwards so that when it was filled with ink and pressed onto the paper.

Then, when the ink transferred to the paper, the images were rightside around. A tower supposed to face left in the final picture would face right on the wood, and so on and so forth. The prints would often be published as series, and so there was always a collection to find.
