A much-needed podcast that filled a big niche!
Recently, my elementary school son and I read “Heart of a Samurai,” a book based on Manjiro Nakahama, the first Japanese person to land in America. CY and Jacob will be your personal “Manjiro” to the mythical (as in the limited-editions that only a few could have seen), cloistered, often mind-bogling but always fascinating world of Japanese stationery and fountain pen. Unlike Manjro who had to survive on raw albatross flesh, the first episode of Tokyo Inkling will whet your appetite and open the floodgate for more information from this arcane world: the shops, the shows, the inks, the paper, the grinds, and more. One episode alone already filled my little notebook of places to visit when I’m going back to Japan again. I can’t wait for future episodes, and I hope to hear more from the other member Japanese fountain pen experts such as Bruno, Dan, et al. A much needed podcast that filled a big niche!!

One of the few podcasts I *always* listen to! As a fan of Japanese fountain pens I really appreciate a deeper insight into a topic that can be inscrutable for outsiders.
