Bunbogu Cafe has the Best Japanese Stationary to Make a Travel Journal

Friendly staff selects and explains some of the best stationary

Bunbougu (文房具) is the Japanese word for stationary and it includes all kinds of items that you might use for writing, drawing, or paper crafts. In Tokyo Omotesando, you can find a selection of the best stationary from Japan at the Bunbougu Cafe. It is a stationary store and cafe combined.

Pick up some pens, notebooks, or origami paper and try them while you have a glass of wine or a coffee. The staff here is very friendly. Please ask them to explain to you how to use the different items. There are plenty of tables and seats to take a lunch or coffee break and take notes or draw here.

Here are some excellent tools I discovered here with help of the staff. The scissors and pens look normal, but they are actually exceptionally good tools. These very sharp fitcut scissors made by PLUS have rounded blades for always cutting at a perfect angle. Excellent value for money, these are only around 300 yen.

Bunbougu Cafe is located near Omotesando station. Take exit A2 and turn right into the small street next to the Apple shop. Follow the signs to the famous Tonkatsu shop Maisen (まい泉). Bunbougu Cafe is just a few shops down the street. Look for the stairs down into the store. http://www.bun-cafe.com/map

Use the fun and quality Japanese stationary & make a travel journal

The best Japanese stationary is both fun and functional. Japanese stationary makers are constantly trying to improve their products. Pick up a few items and put a little bit of Japanese kawaii and quality into your everyday life. Maybe the best use for the pens and notebooks would be to create a travel journal. You could start one right here at the Bunbogu Cafe.
