To be honest I don’t know much about the company. Some time ago Algester posted topic about Tag Kyoto branch inks. The bottles and colors presented on their site looked nice so I’ve decided to try some of these inks. The inks are made by or for Takeda Jimuki company and are available in two lines: Kyo No Oto and Kyo-Iro. Kyo no Oto inks are said to be traditional japanese colors that has been used since heian era (roughly 1000 years ago),and expressing a tinges that have been nurtured in long history and profound culture for long time.
Kyonooto inks are:
Kyo-iro inks are:
- Cherry Blossom of Keage
- Flaming Red of Fushimi
- Moonlight of Higashiyama
- Soft Snow of Ohara
- Stone Road of Gion
Imayou-iro is fairly saturated pink ink. When you enter japanese characters
to google you receive such results. The ink is rather wet. As for the color – not my cup of tea.
As for other specs: no feathering, no bleedthrough, no water resistance.
