Maruzen Nihombashi Akane review

Maruzen is a big brand department store in Japan. They carry their own line of pens and inks named Century and Athena. It seems most of their inks are made by Sailor. I’m not sure how many inks they offer at the moment but I know they have some stunning colors in the line up. It seems follwoing inks were / are offered to customers:

  1. Akane (limited edidion, Nihomnashi branch)
  2. Eternal Blue
  3. hatobanezu
  4. Lemon
  5. Midori
  6. Renga
  7. River Blue
  8. Sepia (Athena branch)

If anyone is able to complete the list, I would be grateful.

By means of exchange I’ve managed to get a bottle of Renga. The jewel Sailor bottle looks nice but the cap feels cheap and, to be honest, I prefer regular Sailor bottles.

Akane is stunning red ink. Incredibly smooth and pretty unique. Sadly it’s almost unobtainable.
