This is a collaboration between PLUS and Sailor. Each set includes a Ca.Crea Premium Cross notebook, a Sailor Profit Junior, and a 20ml bottle of dye ink. The sets come in three colours: navy, pink, and purple.
The notebook is designed for writing with fountain pens. It opens flat and is 1/3 of an A4 paper in size. (A4 is slightly longer than the letter size standard in North America.)
The pen nib is a MF size which suits beginners, and it features an original design that is not found in other Sailor Profit Juniors. Navy features a Mt. Fuji logo, pink features a cherry blossom logo, and the purple features a origami crane logo which symbolizes hope and good wishes.
How to buy?
Each set retails for 5,500 JPY (prices exclude tax/shipping/duties), and you can buy directly from Amazon Japan. This is a great, because buying through AmazonGlobal means:
- No 8% Japanese sales tax
- Courier shipping at reasonable rates
- DDP—no surprises at the door!
Sailor also sells it on their web store as well.
To buy or not to buy?
All three items in the set are sold separately on Amazon Japan at a cheaper price (prices exclude shipping/duties).
- Ca.Crea Premium Cross Notebook in Glossy Pink 734 JPY
- Sailor Profit Junior in Transparent Pink 2,160 JPY
- Sailor Shikiori Dye Ink in Yozakura 20ml 1,080 JPY
- Total = 3974 JPY
Just looking at the price, it may be cheaper to buy the items separately. Considering that Amazon prices often fluctuate, you can buy the above items at a discounted rate. However, there are unique points to the set, such as the matching colouring to all three items, as well as the special nib design. The set is also packaged in a gift box, which makes it easy for gifting purposes.

This marks the first of the many collaboration between PLUS and Sailor. Excited to see what’s next!
