Living in a top UK holiday destination I’m always interested in finding out about attractions in other countries. Tokyo Tower came across my radar when I was searching the awesome stationary at Bureau Direct.
So what’s the connection?
South Korean brand Paperways uses travel as a motif in their products. I love what they say:
Traveling exposes us to new and fresh ideas.
It also creates experiences and memories that we want to treasure forever.
I found out some interesting information about Tokyo Tower …
- Tokyo Tower was built in 1958
- It’s the second tallest structure in Japan
- Its original use was for television broadcasting
- Today it’s a communication and observation tower popular with tourists
- Over 150 million people have visited!
- The two-story Main Observatory is at 150 metres (490 ft), while the smaller Special Observatory reaches a height of 249.6 metres (819 ft)
- Every 5 years the tower is repainted which takes about 12 months and uses 28,000 litres of paint (I wonder if it’s the same people who work on repainting it …)
- Foot Town at the base of the tower is four stories and includes restaurants, a convenience store, Aquarium Gallery, souvenir shop, Guinness World Record museum, a wax museum and a gallery displaying optical illusions
- From dusk to midnight, floodlights illuminate the entire tower.
- Literary and movie fame ~ it’s been used in anime and manga and has been the location of the battles between Godzilla and King Kong
Are you one of the 150+ million visitors?
Back to the connection with stationery. I loved the Tokyo Paperways City Set and bought a set for a giveaway. I think it’s unusual. The pack features a keyboard pad (a weekly planner pad which can be placed under the keyboard and used to keep a diary or jot reminders), a Mini City notebooks set and a pack of Sticky Notes. The items graphically celebrate the capital city Tokyo.
- Keyboard pad has 50 pages marked Mon-Sun
- Undated so you can start it anytime.
- Set of two City Notebooks with 48 pages each
- Set of 4 Mini Sticky Notes with 19 sheets per pad
What do you think? Do you think it’s unique too?

Happy stationery hoarding 🙂
