2. Traveler’s Factory

Traveler’s Factory, as the name implies, has nothing to do with travel. This stationery store sells a lot of products from travelers, around the main visuals of cities, maps, airplanes, etc. For stationery fans who like to write travel notebooks, this is definitely your heaven!

Traveler’s Factory occasionally launches period-limited themed travel goods, so if you like stationery, don’t miss it! (There are a lot of love-hate limited period locations in Japan, so it’s an abomination!)

Address: 3-13-10 Kamimeguro, Meguro-ku, Tokyo
Access: Nakameguro Station (Tokyu Toyoko Line/Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line) 3 minutes walk

3. Kyokyodo

Kyokyodo is a long-established stationery store located in front of Ginza Eki in Tokyo. Founded in 1663, it sells traditional and elegant products and is a good place to find Japanese souvenirs.

The traditional designs of inkstones, brushes, fans, traditional colored letterheads, wrapping boxes and letterheads have kept Hatajido’s position in the hearts of stationery fans unshakable even as new stationery is being created. Please note that Hatajido closes at 7:00 p.m., so go early if you want to visit!

5. Itoya

Finally, I would like to introduce ITO-YA, which was established in 1904! Ito bookstore has been around for 100 years, and made its name by introducing imported stationery in the early days. The two, thirteen-story building stands out in the Ginza shopping district with its many boutiques.

The floors are categorized by themes such as gifts, packaging, office stationery, and art supplies, and each floor has a different style, making it quite dazzling! It’s no exaggeration to say that it’s the largest stationery store in Tokyo, and it’s a must-see for many people visiting Ginza!
