We bring rolls of it to almost every photo shoot; the lovely paper tapes often add the perfect touch of color or shape to a styled vignette. As a lifelong lover of tape products, I would eagerly journey to Tokyo for a chance to wander through this pattern-filled paradise, browsing the aisles of tape and getting a glimpse at the newest designs yet to be released.

The dates aren’t set yet, but there’s a good chance there will be another expo this year—you can find news of upcoming events on the MT site. In the meantime, I highly recommend picking up a few rolls and experimenting. Or, if tape is not your thing, consider getting some paint and striping out a room—I find MT’s color palettes just as inspiring and useful as their products, and they are perfect for getting a jumpstart on spring and summer.
