What is WATOJI NOTE?
Japanese-style bookbinding originated as Chinese bookbinding techniques, which spread to Japan and were further developed there. The history of such bookbinding dates back to the Heian period, and this tradition remains intact to this day. In 2018, we at DOHOSHA Printing will celebrate our 100th year. During our 100-year history, we have used the knowledge and experience we have cultivated to create Japanese-style bound notebooks in the hope of spreading this traditional Japanese product throughout the world.
Although the bookbinding method we use is of traditional Japanese origin, we use standard paper for our notebook pages and covers, and our notebooks incorporate modern designs. We specifically use b7 cream paper for the pages, which makes for an extremely smooth writing experience when using ballpoint pens or gel pens in particular. We also use kihoushi paper for our covers, which achieves a warmth and gentleness. We would be delighted if you could experience the quality of our notebooks for yourself.
