Yamamoto Paper Paper Tasting
“Japanese notebooks are pen friendly and there are so many types of paper. I want to get more knowledge about them.” This product was born from such a conversation with a friend abroad. Paper Tasting is a test writing pad to enjoy writing comfort. Like wine tasting, you can try various kinds of paper and find your favorite pen friendly paper. Also these products are packaged with paper description and paper classification table so that you can know more deeply about paper made in Japan. Just like hearing a lot of knowledge from wine sommelier.
We are planing to continue the series in the future and going to provide even deeper knowledge through it.
