Chasing Spring Blooms through TRAVEL & SKETCH

Spring is here! In Nakameguro neighborhood, where TRAVELER’S FACTORY in Tokyo is based, sakura (cherry blossoms) are blooming along the Meguro River. The white and pink flowers sway delicately above the visitors’ heads, its season fleeting but memorable. Other than the iconic cherry blossoms that signal Japan’s springtime, what other spring flowers spring up in your neighborhood?

Plum blossoms.

When you’re out and about on a quick trip to your local coffee shop or a day-long excursion in the city, why not pause to admire the rows of tulips on the sidewalk, or magnolia flowers blooming from interweaving branches? We hope you are also carrying your TRAVELER’S notebook as a companion, ready to document the cheerful scenery of spring.

One of our TRAVELER’S COMPANY USA staff also discovered beautiful rows of plum blossoms and cherry blossoms in her neighborhood. Her TRAVELER’S notebook is the perfect tool to do some nature journaling on her later morning walks. She also used the TRC USA x Art Toolkit collaboration watercolor palettes to quickly add color to her drawings.

TRC USA x Art Toolkit TRAVEL & SKETCH palettes are available in two sizes: Pocket (fits in the pocket of a TRAVELER’S notebook Passport Size) and Folio (twice the size of a pocket palette).

These palettes are thin and portable. Based on your preference, you can select your favorite watercolor painting kit to bring on the go.

The special color Limited Green, first introduced in 2021, is also now available in pocket and folio sizes, while supplies last.

This spring, we hope you will have more opportunities to enjoy the warmer weather outdoors. Capture blossoming trees and flowers in your TRAVELER’S notebook. We look forward to seeing TRAVELER’S notebook fans combine their love for travel, nature, and art into creative expressions in the notebooks. Don’t forget to stay hydrated with the TF Original Stainless Steel bottles. Cheers to a creative and colorful spring!
