Japan Stationery Haul

DSC_2584

Okay, so I went to Japan and South Korea right after my final exams and I seriously dropped loads of cash on stationery. Not going to lie, stationery was probably the main thing I wanted to buy while on vacation. Japan is a stationery wonderland after all. Since I bought so much, I thought I’d do a haul! I haven’t used all of the items yet so I can’t say much but I might do a review on some of my favourite products later.


MUJI is seriously a dream. I love very simple and minimalistic things and that’s everything that MUJI embraces with its no-brand policy. Aside from their delicious snacks and stylish household goods, they are also known for their quality but reasonably priced stationery.

So far, I’ve only used the Gel Ink Ballpoint Pen Hexagonal and I really enjoy it. I got it in 0.25mm which is the thinnest pen I’ve got but it allows me to write smaller without smudging on my Hobonichi.

These are pens that I know and love so I just stocked up on some of my favourite colours and the essential black of course.

LOFT

Loft was by far my favourite store in Japan because of how stylish and cute everything was. The stationery section was amazing and even managed to overwhelm me, being the big pen freak that I am.

I’m a huge fan of Sarasa gel pens so I stocked up on my favourite colours! The Sarasa pens with rapid dry ink are absolutely amazing because they don’t smudge at all with my highlighters! It’s a shame I didn’t buy refills for them because I can see them becoming my go to note-taking pens.

The numbered clips are Midori Brass Clips and the tabbed sticky notes are from Film Fusen. The Magnet Markers are by Hightide.

There wasn’t any packaging on the copper and big silver clips so I’m not sure where you could get those, sorry! I’ve been so obsessed with magnetic bookmarks that I’m slowly but surely gathering up a collection. They are just so cute and useful for textbooks and study notes. The Midori Brass clips were on my wish list for the longest time and I finally got them! I think those will be super helpful for indicating chapters in textbooks or notes.

Surprisingly, the pencil case is the only stationery item I bought from South Korea. Since I went to Japan first, I felt like I bought everything already so I really didn’t buy that much in Korea. Nevertheless I still went a bit crazy with pencil pouches. In fact, I actually bought  8 pouches in total on this entire trip, but the other ones were for toiletries and such. Crazy, right?!

Anyways! That concludes my Japan trip stationery haul! I bought a ton so I don’t think I’ll be buying new stationery anytime soon. Let me know if you have questions on any of the products or where I got them specifically. There were so many items that I must have left out some important information. See you in the next post!
