Stationery Store tag – Modern Kyoto stationery and the new face of Teramachi
Stationery Store tag – Teramachi Sanjo is simply that, a stationery store located in the Sanjo-dori part of the Teramachi shopping arcade.
Only just opened in mid-2018, tag is a relatively new addition to Teramachi St. In addition to stocking your usual assortment of wonderfully Kyoto-esque goods, tag also has a huge selection of practical stationery, and office and store supplies.
While the entrance may be a little unsuspecting, it opens up to a large interior filled shelves of stationery across multiple floors. Stepping inside, you’re sucked into a world of interesting and exciting stationery that beckons you deeper and deeper inside.
However, among all the stationery, two of the biggest draws of tag has to be their massive assortment of Kyoto made and original products.
As you enter the store, you’ll see various stationery using Kyoto made traditional Japanese washi paper and goshuin seal books. As you make your way around the store, you’ll also come across original tag ink and fountain pens too.
Also, while tag actually has a few locations around Kyoto, this Teramachi Sanjo store offers a great selection of things that can only be found there.
The name "tag" comes from the idea of chucking up a sticky note somewhere. Because when you stick something to where you use it the most, you cut down the time it takes to find it again. So while the exact kind of stationery and office supplies being sort after vary between customers, tag wanted to cement themselves as the first place anyone would look, the first sticky note that they would see.
If you’re looking for stationery that’s uniquely Kyoto, then tag will have you covered.
