Following on the popular limited edition - Yowanoaki, we created a new exclusive design called Shikinozogan 四季の象嵌 - made with Japanese Traditional Art - Zogan.
This time, more special than normal, our Zogan designs are crafted with both pearl shells and natural wood. It's even more sophisticated than the usual pearl inlay. Nonetheless, it's the best way to beautifully capture the scenes into our fountain pens.

The designs are inspired by signature icons of beautiful nature in Japan throughout four seasons. Sakura (Cherry Blossom) for spring, Ajisai (Hydrangea) for summer, Momiji (Autumn leaves) for autumn, and Tsubaki (Camellia Japonica) for winter. This time, the first two designs to be introduced to you are Sakura-gari and Momiji-gari.

Named after two famous Japanese traditions - 桜狩り (Sakura-gari - Sakura hunting) and 紅葉狩り (Momiji-gari - Autumn leaves hunting), the two designs are meant to capture the most beautiful moments of these elements throughout the year. 

The terms refer to those who are seeking out cherry blossom (Sakura) or autumn leaves (Momiji) in full bloom, only to enjoy and admire their beauty. And just as much as how we want to explore and deliver the Japanese's traditional arts to you, we also hope you can enjoy the most mesmerizing scenes of the four seasons in Japan through this collection.
