Favorite Stationery Shops in Tokyo

Hello friends!

I get a TON of messages asking what are my favorite stationery shops in Tokyo. I’ve compiled a list of most of my favorite places.  If it’s not my favorite place, I’ve noted it next to the shop (I still added it to the list for first time visitors).

My BIGGEST advice when you’re stationery shopping is to BE OPEN to the fact that there is stationery everywhere.  If you see a department store, or zakka store, go in!  Look around.  Sometimes even stores that mainly sell ceramic plates and mugs will also sell the most unique postcards.  They even sell pens and basic stationery goods inside Family Mart and 711.  ALWAYS check their website or instagram for opening and closing hours (for example: some stores randomly close on Tuesdays). Last but not least! Google is your best friend here!  Just write the names of these places using Google maps, and it will help you plan out your trip.
