Yamamoto Paper - B7 Bulky - 70gsm - A4 - 50 Sheets
“b7-Bulky” is even bulkier than the “b7-Tranext”, meaning it has a lower paper density. “b7-Bulky” is another type of paper produced at the Ishinomaki Mill by Nippon Paper Industries. At its height, the Ishinomaki Mill was producing almost 40% of Japan's publishing paper, about 2,500 tons of paper per day. After the disaster of the Great East Japan Earthquake, Nippon Paper Industries spared no time to bring their factory back to operation. They were determined to reach full recovery, not only for the sake of their local employees, but for all of the book lovers throughout Japan. Within six months, they were able to bring the Ishinomaki No. 8 paper machine (first deployed in 1970) back on-line. 
Yamamoto Paper - Kin Kaku Super White - A4 - 50 sheets
In the fall of 2018, the manufacturer of Kin Kaku Den, Sakamoto Paper Industries, decided to close their operations. Sakamoto Paper Industries had a long history of making paper by hand before they switched to mechanized paper production in the 1960s. Kin Kaku Den was a paper they developed through extensive trial-and-error with the goal to create Washi paper suitable for offset printing. The name was inspired by the glimmering light reflected off of the main hall of the temple. Kin Kaku Den was commonly used in letter sets and for prayer writing by Buddhist monks. It is also used by the Ino Washi Museum for their pamphlets and entry tickets. Unfortunately they decided to cease operations due to the retirement of their paper master and the aging of their equipment which made maintenance difficult.
Yamamoto Paper - Light Force - 68gsm - A4 - 50 Sheets
Light Force is high bulk paper, was developed to meet the needs of publishers who wanted a paper that balanced highly printability of photos with eggshell. In our ink tests, any inks dried almost immediately and showed no bleed-through. And the slightly rough surface provides a wonderful feel when writing. 
Yamamoto Paper - OK Fools - 81gsm - A4 - 50 Sheets
OK Fools was the first Fool's Cap paper produced in Japan by Ohtori Paper. In Japan, the term "Fools Paper" has long been used to refer to high-end writing paper. British Fool's Cap paper was first imported into Japan in the late 1800s. The popular Japanese version was produced at the Oji Ogura Factory, where the name OK comes from. While the current iteration is being made by Nippon Paper Industries Yatsushiro Factory, they have kept the OK name for brand recognition. Our ink tests with blue and black Sailor and Platinum inks showed no feathering nor bleed-through. Very wet redish-pinkish J. Herbin inks showed slight feathering and bleed-through. We recommend writing with Medium or finer nibs.
Yamamoto Paper - Slight White - 81gsm - A4 - 50 Sheets
Slight is produced at Nagaoka Plant No. 3. It is used in a book [coloring book for adults]. It was jointly developed by a publishing company, an art materials manufacturer, and Hokuetsu Corporation. Table tests in the laboratory, actual equipment tests, and quality checks were repeated in order to pursue expressiveness and writing comfort when using colored pencils and other art materials. And as a result of the continuous improvement of raw materials and manufacturing processes, Slight was born. [Coloring books for adults] are very popular, and we hold big contests. And many coloring book fans participate in the contest every year. In the ink writing test conducted by Yamamoto Shigyo, even low viscosity ink stayed firmly in the pen without blotting, and there was no back-stopping. And what is more, the rough paper surface that is transmitted from the nib is very comfortable.
Yamamoto Paper - Takasago Bank Premium - 87gsm - A4 - 50 Sheets
In 2020, Mitsubishi Paper Mills Ltd. and Yamamoto Paper embarked on the joint development of a new brand of paper. At their project launch meeting on February 4 at the Mitsubishi Paper Takasago Mill, Taizo Yamamoto (Yamamoto Paper) proposed the creation of Bank Paper Takasago Premium. He set the following five goals for this new paper: (1) To pursue a writing paper that is suitable for fountain pens, (2) with a silky surface (smoothness), (3) that enhances ink shading, (4) that produces accurate color rendition (brightness), and (5) that has quick dry times to be suitable for note-taking.
