The Sailor Manyo Shirakashi 50ml Bottled Ink is available for order on-line and in-store at Dromgoole's.
The immensely popular Sailor Manyo Bottle Ink Series will be adding eight new colors. Slated for a late August 2020 North American release, these eight new colors are in addition to the current eight colors that have been a runaway hit since they were first introduced in late 2019. Leaves and flowers are once again the main theme of this new vibrant palette range that draws its inspiration from Japanese “Manyoshu” poems.
This new Manyo Bottle Ink Series is once again available only to Sailor’s international market. They will not be available for Japanese domestic distribution. These will be presented in the same familiar attractive square 50 ml bottle. Although availability is anticipated for late August, we are now taking pre-orders.
Manyosyu - Collection of Ten Thousand Leaves - is the oldest (c.759) and most revered anthology of Japan’s poetic compilations.
Many is an abbreviation of “Manyosyu” and its meaning indicates people of all ranks.
In Japan, along with the Gregorian calendar, it is common for people to also use the year in era names based on the reign of the Emperor. In May 2019 the name of the era was changed form “Heisei” to ‘Reiwa’ which is the 248th era from the year 645.
‘Reiwa” is the first era to be chosen from traditional work of Japanese poetry. The era name means beautiful harmony’ and is based on a poem from ‘Manyosyu’
