There are many ways of recalling your precious travel memories. You can reminisce by looking at old photos, listen to music of the time, make use of your travel purchases - the list goes on!
However, I believe that the best way to recall your memories, is by describing them in written form in a notebook. For this reason, I always use "Traveler's Notebook" when I'm out on my travel!
What is the "Traveler's Notebook"?
Have you ever heard of the Traveler's Notebook?
The "Traveler's Notebook" is created by Midori, the main subsidiary of the all-embracing designer stationary manufacturer, Designphil. The book has a leather-bound cover, and can be teamed up with the refill of your choice.
This notebook is based on the concept of "spending every day like it is a journey", and aims to have all travel-lovers use it. The comment below is an explanation of the product taken from the homepage of Midori.
The leather cover is of high quality and style, and wears well with age. The simplicity of this notebook supports your writing needs. We strived to make a book that would make you want to take it in hand, and venture out on your travels. If you randomly drop into a coffee shop, please go ahead and record your thoughts and feelings!

I Visited the Home of the Traveler's Notebook!
This time I visited Traveler's Factory in Tokyo's Nakameguro, where they sell the "Traveler's Notebook". Traveler's Factory is also the official store where Designphil operates the Midori brand.
The interior, on the whole, appears to be a secret base - very exciting! As expected, the "Traveler's Notebook" and refill are also positioned here. The light of the warm incandescent lamp creates the distinctive atmosphere of this shop.
Besides the Traveler's Notebook, other travel-related merchandise is also on display. These include bags, accessory cases, and writing tools. These items are of a such good quality that they will make you want to use them on a daily basis - even if you are not on your travels!
Customize Your Goods on the First Floor!
A space has been set up on the first floor of the Traveler's Factory, where you can customize your Traveler's Notebook. With a cup of filtered coffee (sold on the ground floor) in one hand, you can customize your recently purchased Traveler's Notebook in your own unique style - the perfect companion to take on your travels!
On a side note, there is currently only one store in Nakameguro. However, the second store is being planned for opening on July 8th at Narita Airport, Terminal 1!
Before you go off on your travels, please drop by!
