Lots of pretty colors!! I feel like there might be too many shades of blue, but other than that, really great set.

About Akashiya

Akashiya Co., Ltd. was founded in 1624 in Nara, Japan, and is famous for its calligraphy brushes. A famous Japanese monk, Kobo Daishi (弘法大師), taught Chinese brush calligraphy to Kiyokawa Sakanai in Nara around 800. This period marks the beginning of Japanese brush calligraphy. The type of brush pen from that period is also known as "Nara Fude (brush)".
