[BKARTS] paper sources in Japan



Happy New Year to all ~

A bit ago, someone asked about paper sources in Japan and at the time, I
knew an art teacher who just returned from sabbatical there - and asked if
he had information. He just emailed the following - which appears to be a
source "you" may have already found.
I lost the email address of the gentleman who sought information on paper in
Japan. Perhaps you can forward the following to him:

>From a shopping guide by Connie Shepherd
"My favorite paper store, Kurodaya Asakusa, is in
Asakusa, just to the right of the huge gate as you
walk toward Senso Ji. (Take exit 1 or 6 from the Ginza
Line, Asakusa Station). Another wonderful store is
Kyukyodo in Ginza on Chuo-dori. It is near the corner
of the main Ginza intersection, next to the Sannai
Store complex.Down the street from Kyukyodo is Itoya,
which carries contemporary stationary as well as
traditional paper. You will recognize it by the huge
red paperclip hanging from front of building.If you
walk through main store and out the back door you will
find another Itoya store on your left which
specializes in washi and origami paper. All of the
Ginza stores can be reached by taking exit  A7,8, or 9
of the Ginza subway line, Ginza station."

Enjoy shopping, A.
