Noshi paper is an indispensable part of Japanese gift culture. With a decorative motif symbolizing dried awabi (abalone) printed on it, it is put around presents for auspicious occasions such as weddings.
Today noshi paper has evolved into a cute, fashionable, easy-to-use wrapping item: “Noshi Note”, the latest creation by Sasagawa Co. Ltd., manufacturer in Osaka making noshi paper for 120 years.
Each package contains 20 sheets of noshi paper, of four colourful motifs (Japanese or western). It is made of Mino washi, Japanese paper known for its fine and soft texture. Bound together like a notebook (or rather, sticky notes), each sheet can be detached easily, great for putting on a casual yet special gift.
Noshi Note – sold at an affordable price of some 300 yen – can be purchased online (in Japan only) or at stationers nationwide, including 9 stores in Tokyo (as of February 2016).
