  • This diary makes effective use of blank space.

    Schedules and ideas both serve different purposes, but Midori still thought they could be written down together. MD Notebook Diary A5 Thin has margins around the calendar for you to use however you see fit.

    Your plans inspire thoughts, then those ideas you put down in the margins will motivate your next action.This diary has the breadth and feel every of MD Notebook.

    The MD Notebook Diary contains only monthly calendar and memo pages for a slimmer design.

    Portability was emphasized for MD Notebook Diary Thin, and even though it has been slimmed down, its functionality remains unchanged. We also adopted a 5mm grid for the memo pages which some people might find easier to use.

    The MD Notebook Diary includes an index label and bookplate. The Index Label contains the Year and "Diary" and can be attached to the spine. The bookplate can be filled in with your name and signature, the date you began using the diary or your goals for the year. Affix it to the inside of the cover or on the title page so that you can see it each time you use your MD Notebook Diary.

    The note pages are divided into eight sections across a two-page spread, to make your weekly diary extra flexible.

    MD paper is suitable for use with both fountain pens and pencils.



  • MD Paper is Midori's own writing paper which has been produced since the 1960's. It is designed to give the best writing comfort across all types of writing instruments including fountain pens and pencils. 

    The pulp used in MD Paper is made from broad-leaved trees. Compared to conifers that result in hard, inflexible paper, broad-leaved trees provide for a finish with a smooth texture.

    The process of pulping and making the paper is performed in Midori's factory and each batch is rigorously tested to ensure it meets the high quality required.

    Inspection begins by assessing thickness, weight and color. The most time-consuming inspection is the writing properties test. A variety of different writing implements are used to write or draw letters and lines repeatedly.

    This test is done to check for quality, including ink smearing, drying speed and to ensure there is no bleed-through. It is also done to confirm the writing feel of how the pen glides or catches on the paper, and to inspect texture, including touch and feel. Only paper that has passed all these inspections is given the name MD Paper.
