It’s nearly back-to-school season in Japan (Japanese schools start in April), which means that there’s plenty of cute Japanese stationery on sale. So let’s have a look at some super cute kawaii (cute, again) stationery that you’ll love to make a whole set of.
Okay, so first things first you’ll be wanting the cutest pencil case, right? This pencil case ticks off everything ‘kawaii.’ The pastel color (whether you fancy pink, green or purple), the cute animal, and the squishiness! How adorable.
Whenever you feel like you’re losing concentration in class, just squish the lil’ cat and feel focused. It’s actually the same psychology of squeezing a mochi squishy, which means it’s perfect for any kawaii stationery collection.
These super flowery, pink cherry blossom automatic pencils provide a maturity to the kawaii aesthetic. You can even give one to your grandma and she’d love it! With a built-in eraser at the top and the standard size of lead for each pencil, it is easy to replace them like new again at the start of each semester.
If you aren’t a fan of cute animals, then check out an adorably kawaii mini eraser set. It gets points for not only being mini and in wonderful ice-cream sprinkles colors, but also for each sushi having its own little face! Check out the winking rice ball or the smiling tuna sushi – utterly adorable.
