SS Crossfield - Japan Version


Apologies! We incorrectly listed this notebook as being made with the "new" Tomoe River paper. It is actually made with the "old" Tomoe River paper.

Our Partner in Japan is now manufacturing a Japanese-market version of the Seven Seas Crossfield! It is being sold at major stores such as Tokyu Hands and Loft.

The notebook is standard A5 size, and slightly thinner that our US version, with 384 pages. This makes it easier to carry around the city in a bag or briefcase (most people in Tokyo do a lot of walking, cycling, and catching buses and trains).

It also has a spacious 7mm grid, which is perfect for the Japanese writing system of Kanji and Kana. But you know what else we love about it? 7mm is also very popular for script, but since it's a grid pattern, you can use the notebook in either "landscape" (normal) mode, or flip it to "portrait" mode, for the same effect as using a full A4-size notebook.

Otherwise, it has the same great lay-flat, sewn-bound and feather-free qualities as our regular lineup of Tomoe River notebooks.




  • 52 gsm Tomoe River white paper
  • 384 sewn-bound pages
  • 7mm full grid (not cross grid like the US version)
  • Water-resistant cover in choice of orange and teal blue with attractive logo
  • Lay-flat binding
  • Rounded corners to reduce dog-earing

  1. My new favorite notebook, and my favorite place to order 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jan 2021

    I just got mine the other day and I'm very pleased. The notebook is much lighter than the other A5 options, but of the same quality. The larger grid is comfortable, inobtrusive. The paper of course is fantastic.

  2. A slimmer version of the Crossfield 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Dec 2020

    I got this because I much prefer the old Tomoe River paper to the new stuff, at least in the reviews I have read. I have not actually tried the new paper but I don't like the sound of the changes that were made. The notebook itself is very well constructed like all Nanami Paper notebooks are. I like the bright orange cover and while I do like the extra pages the US version has, the slimmer Japanese version is perfect when you need a slimmer notebook. I have not used this one yet, still finishing a few pages left in my Standard notebook. If you are looking for a grid pattern notebook and want a slimmer profile, give this a go I think you will be pleased.

    I love the 7mm grid, and you can’t go wrong with Tomoe River paper. The quality of the cover is lovely.
