The Kyo-iro inks are inspired by famous and fascinating places in Kyoto which are the expression of its rich history and profound culture.

Flaming Red of Fushimi

‘Fushimi-Inari’ is the head quarter of ‘Oinari-San’ that exists of 3000 places across Japan. It’s been widely worshiped with people’s deep devotion as a god of harvest, prosperity, safety and fulfillment of dreams.

Soft Snow of Ohara

In winter of Kyoto that is getting silence back after finishing autumn season, you can feel sacred atmosphere if you fold your hand in front of ‘Amitabha’ standing in cedar grove when snow is falling.

Stone Road of Gion

Gion is the city where you can meet aesthetics that has been inherited by Japanese ancestors. There are Kyoto-style house lining up , flow of river , stone road and sometimes you can see ‘Maiko-san’. This is completely Japan itself.

Cherry Blossom of Keage

As becoming spring season, breathtaking landscape with cherry blossom fills everything around ‘Keage’ particularly called ‘Somei-Yoshino’. There is no doubt it is remarkable just like falling star on the railway.

Moonlight of Higashiyama

Higashiyama is the city where there are tradition, creation, culture and comfort. There are not just only a lot of scenic spot and famous places, but there are also Kyoto-style house ‘Machiya’, and full of humaneness around here.

1 review for Kyo-iro Ink – Ink Bottles (6 colors)

  1. Tabitha (verified owner)

    Soft Snow of Ohara was my first Kyo-Iro ink. I’ve used it consistently for about a week and a half now and it is a beautiful powdery purple color. It is not extremely saturated, but it is very legible. As is the case with most Japanese fountain pen inks, this ink behaves very well. I’ve been using it my Pilot Custom 823 with a Fine nib.
    Other reviews you might find online claim that the Kyo-Iro inks run dry, and while I agree that it is not a wet ink, I don’t think that it runs dry. I feel like the ink has an average flow. I’m happy with this ink and will certainly try other colors by this brand.
