BEGIN Japanology Stationery.

For a person who is obsessed with stationery, this is heaven.

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

only in japan can you make a half hour show about Stationery.

2 in the morning watching this, what am I doing with my life
Important lesson: Pay attention to the female population's desires. It could be worth billions to your business.
" 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.

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!
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

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.

9:48 like how Japanese take complaint seriously: "It's better to erase something with a hose instead your rubber".
Felix Haederle
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.

Light Yagami needs to upgrade his stationary
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.
10% are teachers 90% are just stationary nerds

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.
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!"
I never new Japan invented the eraser... Learn something new everyday.

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

"And this one here, it uses invisible ink" "I mean there's nothing in here, is there?"

I use most of Japanese products. Love them so much..

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
Man, the Japanese will take an amazing invention and make it better. Like the car or camera or... ballpoint pen

pen spinning, really nice
From erasers to pen spinning robots. Good vid.
Japanese Culture is so interesting. So many unique inventions and innovations.
Bang pd

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

Great informative & culturally relevant cvideos. Please look into Audio issues in between & halting video.
I'm on a break at work, and this is what I decide to watch. What is life.
Artistic FloofBall
Japan ink pens are heaven
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)
wow suddenly I'm 22 minutes into the video I was going to put in my Watch Later list...
It's time to stop
I never knew I needed this video. But now i'm so glad it exists.
Why do any work using stationery when you can fill your life with so much of it instead?
Lady Adolys
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 didn't think I was going to sit through it all, but it was pretty cool. Well done.
Didn't think I would ever watch a 28 minute video about stationery. But here I am!
Vinsensa Roseline
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).
what happened to the audio? it keeps going from terrible to good
Oh gawd, I knew I would head out to a stationary store after watching this video. I want this now 7:14 EDIT: Yes! Found it. It's at Office Depot, called the Uni Kuru Toga Auto.... ...must..... buy..... ;D
gotta love the Japanese !!! when they obsess on something, they take it past the limit....I love it.....
Ashley Ting
well thank you nihon for inventing the life saver: correction tapes
I LOVE Japanese art & stationery supplies. Whenever I next travel to Japan, I'm bringing a whole empty suitcase to stock up. Even tho I work on a computer all day, I am steadfastly analog in my personal life; handwritten bullet journal, several diaries, and study notes. Japanese pens are the best for writing, hands down!

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?
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.
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..
Michael Harto
pen with facial massager, very popular among women.... i don't think they use it on their face tho...

I was a kid in Japan. It was just before and during the birth of Sanrio. My mom would drop us off in the store and we'd be in there for hours. This is a little less exciting than it is in real life.
Law GamingTV
anyone here does penspinning? :D
*gets a ppap flashback*
I can't believe I spent almost half an hour watching a documentary over stationary.... Informative!
James Barton
I believe Japan is the world's leader in stationery and writing supplies. I've tried some of the products and they do make a big difference. Many can save one from wasting ink and paper. That's cost effective and I appreciate that. b( ^_^)b

What's the song at 21:12 ?

I love stationery.
Maor Avni
In Israel we call the boxcutter "Japanese knife". Now l know why. Thanks for this video!
Raphael Delima
Well, that explains why the cheap pens and pencils I buy at the Japanese dollar stores (Daiso) work better than the pens I buy at OfficeMax.
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.
Jack Kraken
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.
Kim Trúc Lý
Thanks for your videos. I just wish to have a channel for my loved country, Vietnam.

This was so informative and interesting

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.
Clark Hinschberger
Does anyone know where I can buy one of those pencils that rotates the lead, seen at 6:57 ?
You know you're a stationary addict when they don't say it but you still know all the product names😎
Gabriela Varino
«has been spinning pens for 28 years»: sounds like a comic sketch!!!
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.
sten beetlex
have no idea why rest of us are so lazy in offering varieties of pens. and other stuff
So is that what I keep seeing referred to as "washi tape"?
Johanna Zamora
I lived in Japan as a child in the 70's: loved stationery stores. Still use Japanese pens and pencils
The Nerdiacs
Ha, I learned pen-spinning while in high school, the area I went to high school had a large Asian population, mostly Korean and Chinese, and I never realized it was a "thing" until just now.
Jason Baxter
The most popular stationery is the colourful sticky tape!

Anupam Trivedi

15:49 Japanese beauty.😍❤🇯🇵
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.
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?
Florisa Nogueira
I love the Frixion pen for temporary fabric markings and the rotative mechanical pencil for clothing patternmaking by hand!
Atish Patil
