It seems I’m a bit of a slave driver when it comes to getting my hands on inks. A friend of mine who isn’t at all into fountain pens/inks went to Japan for the first time at the end of 2017. I found out the cities he was going to be visiting and promptly gave him a shopping list, not really expecting him to come back with anything…
Well he went to just about every store I wrote down and came back with some nice stuff, because he “was sick and had nothing better to do” 😬
Amongst these stores were Sankodo and Pen Land Cafe in Nagoya, where at Sankodo he really loved their friendly service and at Pen Land Cafe it sounded like he possibly stumbled upon an ink studio event. He said there was a man with a shaker and a small crowd ooh-ing and ahh-ing, he felt like he was intruding so quietly left without buying anything 🤦
So because he went all the way to Pen Land Cafe and didn’t get anything, I had to source this one from someone else at a later date 🤣
