Inku Crate is monthly paper and stationery subscription box from Japan Crate. You can get the box for $25 per month, and you also have the option to get a 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month prepaid subscription. Each month, the box includes a selection of 6-8 Japanese stationery items like notebooks, planners, pencils, pens, markers, stickers, office supplies, and even origami paper and other fun accessories.
I’m so excited to see what fun items I got in this new stationery box!
A colorful booklet sits on top of everything in the box.
The box is filled with adorable goodies!
This is the March 2020 box!
The back of the booklet has a welcome note from the curators!
The inside lists all the items that I got, plus some brief descriptions for each of them.
Everything in my box!
Mochipan Notebook. One of the things we always look forward to in stationery boxes is journals and notebooks! This box did not disappoint as we got a super cute one that features a soft mochi panda!
The first page of the notebook has a space where you can fill out your personal information.
The writing pages are all blank and you can freely write or doodle on them.
Sumikko Gurashi Pen Pouch. It’s a slim pen pouch that features the Sumikko Gurahi gang!
It has different scenes on each side, and both show the characters playing music! The pouch is perfect for pens, pencils, markers, coloring materials, and other writing and coloring tools! It has a zipper enclosure as well.
Sumikko Gurashi Frixion Pen. When you use a pen in writing, it is almost impossible to erase any mistake that you commit, but this “frixion” pen proves otherwise as it uses friction and heat to erase your mistakes!
Again, the pen features the Sumikko Gurashi gang and subscribers can get 1 out of 3 available designs. The pen is also retractable so you will have no worries about missing a pen cap!
Food Schedule Stickers. I love cute stickers, and this box included a sheet of kawaii and yummy stickers!
The small-sized stickers are perfect for daily event schedules. They can be added on journals or notebooks, or any flat surfaces you want to jazz up!
Dessert Marker. This dual-sided marker is not just cute, it also features dessert-inspired fragrances on each tip!
The colors are really vibrant, and when you combine the two colors, you can create a new dessert scent! It’s awesome!
Secret Spy Pen. For making secret notes and messages, we have this spy pen! Anything you write using this pen can only be seen when using a UV light source!
The back of the packaging is in Japanese, but they also included an illustration that you can easily get even without translating everything!
You can write it on paper and it will still look like a blank piece!
The cap of the pen holds the UV light, and it comes with an on/off switch.
Here’s how the light works in the dark or a dim-lighted place.
Stationary Washi Tape. This washi tape looks cute and chic! It’s perfect as a border or divider in my journal!
It features different school and office stationeries like tapes, rulers, ones, papers, envelopes, and more!
Little Twin Stars Tape Cutter. This is the cutest tape cutter I’ve seen! It features Little Twin Stars!
Here are the tape cutters, attached to the included washi tape.
There’s no need for a scissor and an extra hand when you got this easy-to-attach and really kawaii tape cutter!
I really love getting stationery items, and I am also a big pen collector, so having this new box is simply awesome! It includes kawaii and super functional items from Japan that I can use for journal writing, decorating and other crafts. My favorites this month are the “frixion” pen that can erase mistakes, the spy pen that I can use for secret notes and messages, and the tape cutter that will be very useful especially when I’m multi-tasking. Overall, I am really happy with this new subscription! The quality of the goodies in the box is too good to pass up, especially if you’re a Japan fan and a stationery collector!
