If it is special paper that you are after, TAKEO should be your first (and last) stop. One of Japan’s most famous paper distibuters, TAKEO does not only impress with a selection of around 7,000 paper types, but also with its beautiful MIHONCHO HONTEN showroom, which is a paradise for any paper and design lover. Browse through the range of papers beautifully arranged by colour, or select your desired paper types from the sample books on display in this shop. While the showroom only allows you to directly buy papers in A4 size and 1 thickness, you may order larger sizes and various thicknesses from the counter on the first floor. You can also visit TAKEO’s shop on the 7th floor of Ginza Itoya, or its second showroom in Aoyama which both hsell papers in 540 x 390 mm size. While you are at TAKEO MIHONCHO HONTEN, also make sure to check out the small gallery on the second floor which shows free paper-themed exhibitions almost all year round.
