The 365 Notebook series
Special junpakushi paper
The notebooks are made of junpakushi (純白紙 lit: pure white paper). It is a semi-transparent, light and thin yet resistant paper. Traditionally, this kind of paper was used for wrapping up gifts and for calendars. Thanks to the paper being so thin, it was used for slim calendars. This is why the 365 Notebooks include more sheets (380) than one might expect and why they provide a unique and pleasant writing experience.
Shitajiki cardboard sheet
All notebooks of this series include a shitajiki cardboard sheet (下敷き). It is a very commonly-used template in Japanese stationery and must be placed under the sheets in order to write without making mistakes.
Almost all models of this series have a squared shitajiki sheet with a different square size on each side of the sheet (5 and 7 mm). Thanks to these squares, you can write Japanese kanji and kana in a tidy manner.
Satogami paper for the covers
All the covers of this series are made of satogami paper (里紙), a type of special paper typically used in origami.
