Washi and Japanese stationery stores can be found within a stone’s throw in any direction in Kyoto, but if you’re looking for something with a European/Western flair, here’s the shop for you. The Writing Shop is one of the few places that features stationery made with cotton paper (the usual options are washi or standard paper). The shop sells note cards letterpress printed with original designs as well as limited edition prints. It also carries a selection of European stationery and hand bound journals with beautiful leather covers.

And if you run out of letterpress printed business cards while in Kyoto, this is probably your only other option in the city besides Juppunya!
