Where To Buy Midori Tn In Fukuoka Or Tokyo?



Recommended Posts

I'll be in Japan for 3 weeks in May, starting in Fukuoka and making my way up to Sendai and leaving from Tokyo.

 

I checked the Japanese online prices for Midori Travel Notebooks and they're quite a bit cheaper than the online prices here (not surprising of course). I'd really like to buy my Midori in a brick and mortar shop there though, as that way it will be a great reminder of my trip that I'll use every day.

 

So my question is, are they widely available in stationary stores or do I need to research where to buy it beforehand? If so, any suggestions in Fukuoka and or Tokyo, as I'll be spending 4-5 days in both those towns?

 

Thanks so much!

I use pencils.jp for my online ordering, but I believe they have a Brick and Mortar store in Tokio. Japanese friends, please correct me if I've misspoken. mymaido. stocks them in San Francisco and does an online business too. Enjoy the trip, Jim

The TN is very popular and can be found in most major department stores with stationery sections. But if you are in Tokyo, a great place to buy it is at Itoya, which is in the heart of Ginza. Six floors of Japanese stationery heaven... You will dream about that place long after you've returned home.

Reminds me of the Tokyu Hands department store in Shibuya. So much fun. :)

Thanks all!

 

I just read about Sekaido in Shinjuku, another 6 floor art supply store. I'm traveling ultra light with just a day pack, but I'm thinking I may have to buy a small suitcase just for art supplies :D

Sekaido has a huge selection too. However dont get lured in by their "20% off" sales. Most of their prices are marked up higher than normal in the first place.

      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

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
