The area
Address
Neighborhood: Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.

The museum is closed and the company is not sure whether there will be one after the new building is up in a few years. I was there not knowing that it was closed and also visited the office which is just a few blocks away to know the state of the museum.

Unsure when it will re-open as my translator was sleeping at home. How to get here, take the Ginza line to Kyobashi Station and take exit 6 and it is right beside it on street level. I would plan a trip to Ginza and include it as my first stop as the Ginza stores start two blocks away.

I've been a fountain pen collector for years, and a big fan of Pilot pens as well. I had a ball at the Pen Station Museum last week, looking at the amazing artifacts from the history of writing as well as the Pilot-specific information (videos, nib-crafting tools, examples of Namiki urushi masterpieces) and range of products. When I was there (September 9, 2015), I asked the docent where I could go to buy a pen, and I was directed nearby to the Moriichi stationary store where there was a 30% discount sale in progress if one paid cash. They didn't have all the models, but I ended up with a beautiful Pilot Custom 743 for a very good price - nearly half what I would have to pay in the States. My non-pen friends found it an interesting visit as well. The cafe is lovely but only serves coffee beverages and dessert.

I usually go the Pen Station Museum when I am looking for a cheap, but comfortable cafe in the Tokyo Station/Ginza area. The history of pens on the second floor is interesting enough, but based on my observations over the years, I am pretty certain the cafe is more popular than the museum.
