Found on a back street off Aoyama's Kotto-dori, this museum-like stationery shop specialises in ink brushes and fountain pens, imported from all over the world and neatly displayed all over the smallish space. Take time to decide on your favourite at the in-store café, but do prepare to pay good money for quality: pens in the 3,000-piece selection range from ¥10,000 to a whopping ¥2,500,000 – something for a dedicated collector, perhaps?
