Find your pen-friendly paper: "Japanese notebooks are so pen friendly and there are so many types of great paper. How can I learn more about them? Where do I begin?" This product was born from such a conversation with a friend living abroad. "Paper tasting" is a collection of writing pads, expressly to let you try different kinds of papers and enjoy the pleasure of writing on them. Like wine tasting, you will be able to find your favorite pairing of pen and paper, or even pencil and paper. Each package comes with a short description of the included papers, along with a classification table that will show you how the papers fit into the broader landscape of Japanese paper categories. It is like having your very own paper sommelier!
