Erasable Ballpoint Pens

With an erasable ballpoint pen, you do not need to use whiteout. The ink becomes transparent through frictional heat generated by the rubber of the pen.
The erasable pen does not create any eraser shavings and enables you to write on the spot you have just erased. Tip sizes for pens include: 0.38mm, 0.4mm, 0.5mm, 0.7mm. You can find the right size for your needs and most pens are refillable.
You can test them out with sample pens and writing pads on the shelves.


The Japanese seal, "HANKO", serves as personal identification and is indispensable for daily life in Japan.
At our shop, we can carve your name in Japanese characters (kanji, hiragana, or katakana) for your personalized seal. It takes a minimum of two hours for us to make a seal. They can also make for wonderful gifts and souvenirs.

Brush Pens

Traditional Japanese calligraphy requires several tools and technical skill; however, these brush pens can be easily used whenever you want. One of the wonderful features of this brush pen is that you can write many different kinds of strokes just by applying different levels of pressure on the pen.
It is very useful for making a wonderful and original card.
