From our Toronto, Ontario warehouse, we wholesale imported Japanese papers to resellers, manufacturers and artists around the world. Our facility includes a 10,000 foot warehouse, a full-time cutter and production staff as well as our office area, workshop space and Artist Resource Centre.

We continue to host regular demonstrations at Washi Wednesdays at the warehouse, organized to offer instruction and inspiration in using the papers of Japan, so full of creative potential. What do people DO with it? Join us at Washi Wednesday to find out!

If you are a fine artist or conservator looking for the widest range of high-quality Japanese papers, you will want to visit The Japanese Paper Place on Brock Ave. in Toronto. Here, to buy your paper, we can work with you one on one in our Artist Resource Centre, looking at works of art on various papers we stock, helping you to get just the paper you need for whatever medium you work in.

Please note we sell only our non-wholesale fine papers by appointment Monday - Thursday, 9 AM - 5 PM , and Fridays 9 to 12 noon. Friday afternoons we are open for retail shopping of washi and art supplies between noon and 5 PM. No appointment necessary on Friday afternoons!

Please see our Artist Resource Centre page for more details.

"What happened to the store?"

In October 2005, the store at 887 Queen Street West in Toronto changed its name and ownership. The Japanese Paper Place became The Paper Place.

What has remained constant is the ready retail availability on Queen Street West of a wide array of Japanese Papers, supplied by The Japanese Paper Place, sold through The Paper Place. Specializing in paper for craft of all kinds, gift-wrapping, invitation, and other printable applications, The Paper Place is where enthusiasts need to go for these end uses.

The store, separately owned since 2005:
