Product information

Sousan is the name of a thinker from the Spring and Autumn period in ancient China. He was a disciple of Confucius.

曽 ( sou ) 

参( san ) 


Sosan is an ink made with oil smoke and high quality glue, developed through 400 years of ink making at Kobaien.

The color of the ink is soothing and suitable for large works on paper, and the black color deepens quickly. Easy to rub on a inkstone.

The black color thickens quickly. This ink has a bluish black color in dark ink and a light brownish color in light ink.
