Innovative and Stunning Stationery!  ~ Stationery Devotees Gathering ~
 
Twenty one of us got together at Allincco Office in Shibuya. It was the second ICT workshop of “Cool Japan”! We all participants including new members enjoyed touching, testing and using hottest amazing stationeries made in Japan.

Most of products were new for foreigners, so Non-Japanese guests were totally surprised at well-made stationeries even just pens, notebooks, pencil sharpeners and staplers!
 
Fortunately, we had three special speakers! Our first speaker, Tako san,
introduced Japanese proud stationeries in detail, which showed us how innovative and stunning products we have. If you say a “smooth” pen, there were different smoothness from each pens. So we all used actual oil-based pens, and compared how smooth they were, and finally found a favorite one!
 
Takagi san picked up high-efficiency “6 Samurais”, which were shown off Japan’s stationery culture, and explained us their unbelievable functions in his funny ways. All of us fully understood how elaborate products we can buy!
 
And the last speaker, Yoshimura san, presented us astonishing KOKUYO products in her well-prepared presentation (how to produce hit stationery), and she boosted our workshop in Q&A at the end! All guests said “WOW” and “AH!” at least 5, 6 times!




All Japanese stationeries are practical, functional, and well-designed. Most of Japanese stationery companies (including retailers and online shops) produced own products for users to meet consumer needs, and created much better ones to satisfy their next needs while competing with others. But that’s the Japanese style to develop a No.1 high-quality product to the world, and keep a best place!
 
Thank you very much for all guests, and many many thanks to Tako san, Takagi san, and Yoshimura san!!
