BEGIN Japanology Stationery.

Klay Ra
this feels like a very old video but it was uploaded in 2016 somehow even though it seems like it was made in the 90s
" took the hard work of countless people behind the scenes..." *cuts to a guy rubbing off a pencil mark on paper* All jokes aside, binging all my money on a stationary store in Japan is high up on my bucket list.

For a person who is obsessed with stationery, this is heaven.
ok ?
2 in the morning watching this, what am I doing with my life

9:48 like how Japanese take complaint seriously: "It's better to erase something with a hose instead your rubber".
Important lesson: Pay attention to the female population's desires. It could be worth billions to your business.

I'm obsessed with Japanese stationery. I love Japanese pens - uniball, uni koro tuga pencil, sarasa dry gel pen, Copic, Sakura, tombow, Pilot to begin with. They also make fine and extra fine points like it's supposed to be. And the washi tapes designs are so much fun!

only in japan can you make a half hour show about Stationery.
to those who would one day wonder where that stationery cafe is located its in Harajuku near Omote-sando Bungaku-cafe which is also close to Bungbox's Tokyo Branch

When I was growing up in central Mexico, we would randomly have Japanese stationary at the 5 peso store. It was weird because it was so cheap and in Mexico.

I had one of those erasable pens but I live in Australia so one day when I left my notebook outside the whole thing erased itself. :/ I use a mechanical pencil now.

I love that they're are actual documentary channels like this on YouTube. this is something I'd expect to see on PBS as a kid. it's really cool, to say the least.
Yessy Mariana
I use most of Japanese products. Love them so much..
"And this one here, it uses invisible ink" "I mean there's nothing in here, is there?"
Bang pd
This is orgasmic
As a planner/paper/pen/washi tape addict I LLLLOOOOOOVVVEEDD this documentary - L O V E D!
I never new Japan invented the eraser... Learn something new everyday.
From erasers to pen spinning robots. Good vid.
I love Japanese stationary so much!
10% are teachers 90% are just stationary nerds
Man, the Japanese will take an amazing invention and make it better. Like the car or camera or... ballpoint pen
How to find a good stationary store in Japan is to go to a local school and ask students where they buy their pens and papers. The stores are usually strategically located(somewhere between a train station and the school) to cater to the students, and usually the prices are very reasonable and have most popular and up to date products. Avoid going there in the morning. they are usually packed with students. The rest of the day there are almost no customers in there.

pen spinning, really nice

As a writer I can say I love Japanese pens and paper the most. Not only is the paper cute, it's thicker than American in general and far smoother, making for a fantastic writing surface. And the pens are far superior if you want a fine point. Far less ink blobbing on the tips, much better glide over the paper, a cleaner line and often cute and aesthetic. ~Stila

Great informative & culturally relevant cvideos. Please look into Audio issues in between & halting video.
almost every stationary I have are Japanese goods. Some are easily to get on regular stationary store, and some I bought it online and/or Daiso dollar store. They are pretty cheap and good too(except copic markers. it cost 5 USD each markers).

Lol I got really excited to watch this
LOL That elephant notepad... I want to place one of those on a keyboard and say "Steve from accounting really needs to the address the elephant in the room!"
what happened to the audio? it keeps going from terrible to good
I'm on a break at work, and this is what I decide to watch. What is life.

pen spinning - Japan's form of fidget spinner without buying one.

"Some Japanese use pens in a way that has nothing to do with writing, they SPIN them" *・゜゚・*:.。..。.:*・'(*゚▽゚*)'・*:.。. .。.:*・゜゚・*

pen with facial massager, very popular among women.... i don't think they use it on their face tho...
oh yes! Frixion pens and highlighters are my favourite! Erasable ink is so useful :) also, Quasimode at 4:48 (their music is so on point)
It's time to stop
I never knew I needed this video. But now i'm so glad it exists.
Jaycee Cappaert
I watched this video because I am a "stationary freak", of which all are apparently women... of which he spoke of with an incredibly negative and unprofessional tone. Disappointment doubles when you see how he spoke of the pen spinners who demonstrated the "astonishing capabilities of the human race".. wtf, i liked this channel..
Why do any work using stationery when you can fill your life with so much of it instead?
Didn't think I would ever watch a 28 minute video about stationery. But here I am!

decorative masking tape has definitely changed. I mean, washi tape has no chance of winning against the stylish designs of decorative masking tape XD

I love stationery.

Japanese Documentaries are so well done. They have the right balance between graphics and video footage. I feel too many documentaries use CGI way too much and distract the viewer, but Japanese ones seem to get it right, IMHO.

What's the song at 21:12 ?
Japanese Culture is so interesting. So many unique inventions and innovations.
Petra44YT Nein!
I'm so glad the Japanese inveted the gel writers! Writing longhand is bad enough as it is, but with these pens, it is at leat tolerable.

I loves stationery ever since I was a child that I had a dream to open my own stationery store. My room is full of stationery... a bit shame that lots of pens and markers dried up but after 20+ years, I think it's unavoidable. But now that I'm an adult, to really open a stationery store is not that easy. Especially when there is a major stationery supplier in my city. In my childhood, Japanese stationery still not that good. But now they are truly magnificent. I wonder what should I do if I want to open a small stationery store that specialize on Japanese stationery?

I didn't think I was going to sit through it all, but it was pretty cool. Well done.

Frixion pens are the best product for me I usually use it on exams to keep my paper clean 😊
Man, I would love to visit that pen store! Always so impressed by Japanese ingenuity.
wow suddenly I'm 22 minutes into the video I was going to put in my Watch Later list...

I have a feeling, I'll love this channel 😍 I've always had a place in my heart for Japan and this video gave off vintage vibes. It's not something you would see on television nowadays but something you would see in the 90s or so. It's also very educational and makes me excited to see what's next. It reminds me of the those educational videos back in elementary I would see about science, math, and etc.
pen spinning.. it takes me back to junior / senior high school days. It's cool that they also take that one seriously, even inspiring the robotics department at Todai, that guy has amazing reflexes.

This was so informative and interesting

Does anyone know where I can buy one of those pencils that rotates the lead, seen at 6:57 ?
it's WHASI TAPE, not masking tape....

I've been to around parts of Tokyo, and the stationary stores are amazing! It's definitely something to visit, and part of the social culture.
Jason Baxter
The most popular stationery is the colourful sticky tape!
Japan is awesome.

hi I m Atish From Maharashtra Please tell me from where I can buy these stationary in wholesale price to keep in my shop please suggest thank you
Take away from this video: Humans really are amazing!!!!
I love Japanese stationary. It's just got a quality to it that I really haven't found elsewhere. My favorite brands are Copic (though it's not necessarily for stationary but art), Sakura- they've got both gel and waterproof pens- and then Pilot and Pentel. I didn't realize until a few years ago they were a Japanese made pen 😆 I love pens and other stationary stuff. My favorite drawing pencil is the side clicker too.
wow.. the story on how they created the craft knife... cobbler shoe and chocolate bars?? very creative
Florisa Nogueira
I love the Frixion pen for temporary fabric markings and the rotative mechanical pencil for clothing patternmaking by hand!
Frixion pen are the epitome of modern science. we don't need to go any further than this we have all we need
Logan babcock
But what about all the fountain pen advancements? Or the Urushi Lacquer with the Maki-E pens and the craftsmanship that goes with them?
I hate how they never tell you the names of these stores
for real western companies should learn from this. its SO much more fun to do things if your stationary is nicely designed
