The Japanese paper culture is so rich and varied that it can seem impossible to know where to start. Yamamoto's Paper Tasting series originates from this very problem, and their solution is as simple as it is ingenious – namely to address the issue the way wine enthusiasts have always done: with tasting!

This package contains three types of yellow paper in three different sizes, each with 25 sheets each (so 75 sheets).

Kaguya (B7)

Kaguya is a paper that reproduces the crater surface of the moon through 10 different colors. In Japanese, there are different names describing each phase of the moon. The 10 colors of Kaguya each represent a different phase as the moon waxes and wanes. Historically, Jyuusanya (the thirteenth night), has been celebrated as the most beautiful phase. Kaguya is commonly used in decorative boxes, packaging, and book covers.

Paradise Yellow (A6)

It is a paper with colorful dots. Unfortunately, its production was halted in early 2017, so it will not be available in the future.

Raicho Color Jumpaku Yellow (B6)

This paper was commonly used to wrap fruits, such as apples and pears, for shipment. In recent years, such use has been replaced by foam nettings. Enjoy the unique writing surface, color, and texture of this pure white roll paper
