Kakimori is a small stationery shop nestled in Tokyo's Kuramae neighbourhood which has been pleasing customers over the course of three generations. You might find yourself falling in love with the art of writing again after a visit to this specialist stationery shop. Kakimori's range of pens, inks and letter sets are chosen on the basis of how comfortable they are to use, and customers are welcome to try out the fountain pens before making a purchase. Best of all are the order-made notebooks, prepared in 5-10 minutes and with an infinitely customisable selection of covers, paper and bindings available - most of them locally produced, for added "Made in Asakusa" effect.

Great video. Thank you for sharing it with us.

In order to appreciate the sweet, you must truly taste the bitter....

Okay, count me among those wishing it were here, or I were, or could get, there.

Thanks for your message. Really nice video. :thumbup:

If I were in Japan I would certainly go to order my customized notebook at the shop.

 

You're more than welcome, inkstick. :)

If I were to go back to Tokyo on a solo trip I'll splurg it on stationaries next to otaku goods but that depends... :X yeah... I just recently I came back to Tokyo yet gain on a tour <_< I'm curious if you can still find Washi in stationary stores I looked at Ito-ya no luck

 

However here in our country there's also one that does leather book bindings

https://www.facebook.com/Alunsina.Handbound.Books

So technically the craft isn't dead as I believe somewhere in UK they still practice the craft of Bookbinding

US I believe has quite a dedicated craft in Pen Turning and Making so probably each country has their own specialties

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav
