In 2020, Mitsubishi Paper Mills Ltd. and Yamamoto Paper embarked on the joint development of a new brand of paper. At their project launch meeting on February 4 at the Mitsubishi Paper Takasago Mill, Taizo Yamamoto (Yamamoto Paper) proposed the creation of Bank Paper Takasago Premium. He set the following five goals for this new paper: (1) To pursue a writing paper that is suitable for fountain pens, (2) with a silky surface (smoothness), (3) that enhances ink shading, (4) that produces accurate color rendition (brightness), and (5) that has quick dry times to be suitable for note-taking. From the perspective of paper making, many of these features conflict with each outer. For instance, paper that absorbs ink slowly produces greater shading, but is not suitable for use as a notebook because it smears. However, the development team at the Takasago Paper Plant managed to overcome these challenges by finely adjusting the raw ingredients, the sizing materials, and the press machinery. After several series of trials, Bank Paper Takasago Premium was finally produced by Takasago Unit No. 4 on September 8, 2020. As a sign of meeting Mitsubishi Paper's high quality standards, the paper bears the "THREE DIAMONDS" watermark, a watermark that is awarded only to Mitsubishi's highest quality papers.

Super duper smooth paper. Fountain pens glide over it like a skater on perfect ice. The color is a medium-bright white, with a little bit of velum-like transparency and a mottled sheen. No feathering, no bleed through, and negligible show through (unless backlit). Extremely revealing of shade and sheen. Relatively long dry times, but not outrageous. A very pleasant writing experience.

The paper was ordered, shipped and delivered from Japan to UT, USA in exactly 7 days. This was extraordinary timing for an international package. Upon opening the package of three different 50 page loose leaf packs I was astonished at the care taken in wrapping. It was gift wrapped with really nice wrapping paper and the three individual 50 page packages were in perfect condition.
