Made in the Japanese city of Kyoto, Kyo No Oto inks feature traditional colours inspired by the city's beautiful landscape and culture.
The ink colours are made using traditional colouring techniques that have been in use since the Heian era some 1000 years ago and have long been an expression of its rich history and deep culture. The Kyo No Oto Tink is water-based and available in 40ml ink bottles.
Imayou-iro is a safflower red colour that had attracted attention in the Heian era, meaning what Japanese ancestors called "modern colour". It had been favoured by women.
Takeda Jimuki inks are made in small batches, so the colour may vary slightly from one bottle to another. Takeda Jimuki inks are also known as TAG or Kyoto TAG inks, based on the abbreviated name used by Takeda Jimuki's stationery shop in Kyoto.
