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.

  1. Love this! would love more paper styles 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Apr 2019

    I’m already using this every day. I would love to see a blank version in the future for drawings! The grid is great but it’s a but strong for illustrations.

  2. This little notebook is one powerful contender 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Apr 2019

    I just love this A6 notebook and it is a strong contender to the Hobonichi Techo A6, in my opinion. The paper is very similar, a little whiter than the hobo, but very pleasant on the eye still, no harsh white at all. The grid size is identical to the hobo, as far as I can tell

  3. Great A6 Book 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Apr 2019

    Cafe Note A6 - Grid - This is actually the second A6 Café Note that I have purchased. I love the paper, love the fact that are so many pages and also the fact it is undated and can be used for so many things.

  4. I love it, it's exactly what I hoped 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Apr 2019

    I basically wanted a notebook version of my Hobonichi Techo and this is perfection. A6, a tiny bit thicker, same great paper, grid is almost identical (without the date bits of course). I love it.

  5. Happiness is a Cafe Note A6 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Mar 2019

    I bought my first Cafe Note A6 a few months ago to start a journal for 2019. Like many other reviewers, I've joined the Cafe Note A6 fan club. I'm hooked. Just ordered two more. Such a delight to write on. Can take it with me wherever I go. In this digital world, there is something so soothing about opening the Cafe Note and processing the day.

  6. Cafe Note 5 Star Review

    Very happy with my purchase. Perfect for my year long Diary. Loving the paper.

  7. Perfect little notebook! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Mar 2019

    I wanted to downsize from an A5 but hesitated to go with the A6 because it might be too small for me. I tried the B6 Cafe first, but didn't like the large boxes at the top and bottom of the page. So I decided to take a chance and get this A6. I'm glad I did. Once I started using it, I realized that this little notebook is just right.

  8. Great Quality Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Mar 2019

    After reading some of the reviews about shadowing, I was concerned with the thinness of the paper. But upon using a ball point pen, it is not bad. I love the feel of the paper, and I also appreciate the number of pages in one pad. I use it daily, and the faint grid lines keep my normally slanted writing style on track and looking much better. I highly recommend, and in fact purchased more myself.

  9. I have seen God's notebook 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Mar 2019

    This is the best notebook I have ever seen in my life. It is perfect. I feel it is the greatest notebook in existence today.

    First, the grid ruling is nice and small. "But I don't want to write small!" you say. Well then, go use the wide-ruled notebooks that you can find anywhere. Those of us who like to write small have been woefully neglected for years, until now. I cried tears of joy when I saw this grid size and realized that finally, I could write in the tiny letters of my dreams.

    Also, the notebook size. Ladies - why are purses always either tiny or obnoxiously huge? You can't even fit an A5 notebook in the small ones and it'll get lost in the huge ones. Well, now you can get one of the nice small purses and this will fit right in it, so you can always have a notebook. It's the perfect size. Bless this notebook.

    Obviously there's also the paper. Everybody loves Tomoe River paper, as they should. It's now the only paper I will use. Nothing else even comes close to the sheer pleasure it is to use this paper. You can use fountain pens. You can use markers. It doesn't matter. You can use anything and it will look perfect.

    This notebook is so perfect, I bought two more as soon as I got the first one. I'll use this notebook now for everything until I'm dead. If Nanami ever stops making this notebook, it would be an actual tragedy, and probably result in the collapse of our society. Nanami, only you can prevent this horrible future. Please don't ever stop making this notebook.

  10. Journal love 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Feb 2019

    I bought the Cafe Note A6 intending to use it as a journal. I write with a TWSBI Diamond 580 <F> with Pilot ink and it is a dream. It is small, and so can fit easily in my purse. I can fit a lot of writing on the page, and with 480 pages I anticipate that it will last for a long time. I have experienced no bleed through, and the ghosting is minimal - in fact, I like it. I will definitely keep purchasing these little notebooks.
