  • HARDCOVER, A5-Sized Journal: Standard A5 size (5.75 x 8.25 inches) allows for easily transporting in a handbag, backpack or tote.

  • 144 LINED PAGES: Perfect for taking notes or writing daily journal entries.

  • RIBBON BOOKMARK: Whether you're an avid writer or more spontaneous, a ribbon bookmark will help keep track of where you left off writing, so that you don't have to flip through pages to find your last entry. The use of a colorful ribbon also adds a more classic, sophisticated look to the journal and can withstand constant use versus a paper bookmark.

  • ACID-FREE PAPER: More difficult to decompose than regular paper and has a longer shelf-life. It is commonly used when someone wants to archive notes, daily journal entries or sketches for several years without the pages deteriorating or yellowing.

  • FEATURED ART: Utagawa Hiroshige was one of the most prominent Japanese ukiyo-e artists. He is best known for his series of prints The 53 Stations of the Tokaido (1832-1833). Hiroshige's work influenced Europe's Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, including Van Gogh and Monet.



  • About the Author:
    Tuttle Studio draws inspiration from the modern and traditional arts of Asia to create designs for its lines of journals, stationery, gift wrapping products and origami paper. It is a division of Tuttle Publishing, a leading publisher of books on the languages, history, art and cultures of Asia. The company was founded in 1832 in Rutland, Vermont (USA) and opened a branch in Tokyo, Japan in 1948.

    Utagawa Hiroshige was born in Edo (now Tokyo) in 1797. Born as Tokutaro Ando into a minor samurai family, his artistic talents went largely unnoticed until his breakthrough series of prints The 53 Stations of the Tokaido (1832-1833). In the series, he captured the popular journey along the Tokaido road--the main road between Edo (modern day Tokyo) and Kyoto. He produced some 8,000 works, which can now be seen throughout the world, including at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Victoria & Albert Museum & the Tokaido Hiroshige Art Museum.
