I got a nice present from my friend the other day.

It is the world’s only semi-custom made notebook that a stationery shop named KAKIMORI created, which is located near Kuramae Station on the subway line. At KAKIMORI, you can make an original notebook to order by selecting a cover sheet, inside paper and the size.
