Muji Chronotebook To Sweden?

Where can I order a Muji Chronotebook and ship it to Sweden?

It seems like this wonderful creation is either out of stock, non-existent or simply "too precious to ship," as I got the impression when calling the NYC Muji store. Please help, I'm deeehehesperate.

Go into Muji in Åhlens at Sergelstorg and ask them to order it from one of their other stores?

I wrote to Muji US with a similar question not too long ago. Here was the reply:

"For the moment, MUJI products are available for purchase through our UK online store @ and Museum of Modern Art store in New York @ only.
I apologize for any inconveniences."

The Muji UK website is here: Muji UK

Best answer: If you're not able to get to a Muji store, I'd be happy to drop by the NYC Muji that's a block from my office and pick up a Chronotebook for you and ship it wherever you like.

Email the address in my profile if you're interested.

I think Iteki's suggestion is worth trying (although I guess going to the store in Göteborg might suit you better).

I think the generosity of strangers will solve this one, and I am not sure if they meant no-international shipping or just no shipping at all for this item, but in any case when there is no strangers around:


Real-life automatic forwarding address US -> Scandinavia.

The American-store-with-no-international-shipping ship to Jetcarrier facility in New Jersey and they forward it further to you in Norway/Sweden/Denmark. I have used them many times.

Again not sure if that solves this exact predicament but better to know about this than not.

I'll be a crass bastard and ask, what's so spiffy about the book? It's fantastic design, but couldn't you find a really nice blankbook and stamp your own AM/PM circles in the center? Or doodle a different design each day? Why not bind your own?

I was recently in Tokyo, where I found the Chronotebooks on sale for 100 yen (!!). Too bad I already gave my two extras away.

It might pay to ask around to see if anyone knows anyone in Japan?

Response by poster: I even called the UK press office today, and they _never even heard_ of it. Isn't that at least a bit weird for such a potential super hit?
