After many requests to chop our A5 notebooks down to a smaller size, we finally decided it was time to make our own original A6 notebook.

It's the same thickness and page count as our A5 Seven Seas (Crossfield, Standard and Writer) series - just half the height and thus half the weight. And, since it's half the weight, it's possible to ship one notebook inside the USA by First Class Mail (around $4.00).

Performance and paper are the same as our A5: 480 pages, white TRP, lay-flat design. The cover is different though - rather than use the coated-fabric cover we opted for a slightly smoother coated-paper cover. We actually like this new cover a lot  - as much as the A5's fabric cover. It also comes with a dust jacket, which you can choose to use, or not.

The pages are printed with a 3.7mm grid, same size as the Cafe B6-slim, except that it's a full grid.

We hope you like this new notebook - and actually, after working with various larger notebooks over the years, such as our Seven Seas A5, L!FE B5, Tsubame, and even our own Cafe B6, my first thought when I opened the shipment was "Awww...how cute!!!". But since this is a serious tool, it's cute in a way that, say, laser watches, explosive pens, and miniature tape recorders are cute. In fact, if James Bond carried a notebook, this is probably the one he would find most useful.

  2. Great Portable Notebook 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Aug 2019

    Love the Tomoe River paper and great price! Comparable to the Hobonichi a6 plain notebooks, which have crazy shipping.

  3. Excellent 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Aug 2019

    This is my first ever A6 notebook and I love it. It's the perfect size for carrying around in my purse and for bullet journaling. My only complaint is that compared to my studio note, the paper isn't as smooth and the grid is slightly darker. Otherwise perfect notebook.

  4. Wonderful notebook 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jul 2019

    This A6 is the perfect size. The paper is wonderful, a very high quality notebook. . The Nanami company is also fantastic to order from. My notebook was shipped quickly and came to me in excellent condition.

  5. Great Notebook 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Jul 2019

    This is the third A6 notebook I have purchased. I love love love it and it is the only Tomoe River paper notebook I have found with 480 pages. To be honest, I would REALLY love about 20 - 30 more pages for what I use it for but, otherwise, it is perfect.

  6. Great Little Notebook! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jun 2019

    The Cafe Note Notebook is a great little notebook. I love that it has over 400 pages. I laminated the little pink sheet and added some stickers and turned it into a dashboard/pagemarker. I plan to use it for a planner/journal.

  7. Tomoe River Paper is best! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jun 2019

    I love the Tomoe River Paper, and I love that it has 480 pages! I'm rating it 4 as I'm waiting to see how it holds up over a year+...!

  8. Perfect 5 Star Review

    It's the perfect companion to my Hobonichis.

  9. The cutest, best-quality notebook I've ever seen 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jun 2019

    I almost exclusively used A5 notebooks, and I wanted something smaller to carry with me in my purse. This notebook is perfect. The Crossfield (2nd edition) is my favorite notebook I've ever used, and this notebook is a cuter, smaller, and more convenient version of it. It's absolutely great for all the writing I need to do, and it's so durable. My purse destroys everything I put in it eventually, but this notebook should last a while. Honestly, I love this paper, I love the light grid, I love the size, and I think it's perfect. I may order more very soon.
