japanese paper and flowers

I spent so much time today in a Ginza paper store called Kyukyodo. They have an amazing selection of washi, traditional Japanese paper, and calligraphy supplies on the second floor. Right outside was a gorgeous flower stand...

Later this week I'll visit another notable paper place called Kami Hyakka, and hit the Toppan Printing Museum. These are both closed on Mondays so I couldn't make it today.

Hi Rebecca! If you are still in Tokyo and love washi as much as I do, you must you must you must go to Ito-Ya. There are several branches, but the big one is right on Ginza (very close to the washi shop you posted). The main entrance to the huge Ito-Ya is on Ginza, the entrance to the washi shop(which I LOVE) is on the alley behind Ginza/ main Ito-Ya. Four floors of washi, fabric, gorgeous, gorgeous things.

Thank you so much Jill!! I will absolutely visit Ito-Ya this week. I'll be posing all week, so please let me know if you think of anymore must-see places. Any suggestions are most appreciated! :)
