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.

      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.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to

      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
