Where to buy calligraphy nibs in Kyoto 2019/11/12 07:37
I’m trying to find the best place to buy calligraphy nibs (specifically Nikko G) in Kyoto. I went to several stationery shops in Tokyo and didn’t find any but I’m about to be in Kyoto for a few days so hoping to find some there if someone can help! Thanks

Hello.
Are you looking for a nib for drawing manga?
I think this is at the Tokyu Hands art supply department.
Of course, you can buy it at large art supply stores.
Please show the image and ask the clerk.

No not manga, pointed pen calligraphy. Nikko G nibs are made in Tokyo but I couldn’t find them in the shops I went to. I’m hoping someone in Kyoto also supplies them if anyone knows?

Is this different?
This is the famous Tachikawa g in Japan.
This is commonly used for comic drawing.

I made a mistake in the name. Nikko g.
However, this can only find the nib for comics.

Yes! This is exactly correct: http://tachikawa-net.jp/pen/nikkopen10_ng

Do you know where in Kyoto I can find this?

This Gawasendou is a very large art supply store in Kyoto.
You can probably buy what you want here.
And perhaps a manga nib can also be used for writing.

And this is information on the largest and famous art supply stores in Tokyo and Yokohama.

I hope you can buy what you want. Bye.

I'm sorry to write many times.
If this store doesn't have a 100 nib, the clerk will tell you other stores.
I am glad that you like the nib of Japanese products. Please enjoy Kyoto.

私はタチカワから発売されている日光Gペンのペン先を探しています。
可能であれば100本入のものを購入したいです。
それがこちらで取り扱っていない場合、近くの画材店や文房具店を教えていただけますか?

( I am looking for a Nikko G pen nib that is available from Tachikawa.
I would like to purchase 100 pieces if possible.
If it's not here, can you tell me about a nearby art supply store or stationery store? )

I am glad to help you.
Can you speak Japanese? If you don't speak much Japanese, please show this Japanese to the store clerk. Of course, it is better to show the image of the nib you want.
Also, on the Tachikawa website, it was written that the pen tip could be used for writing even if it was for comics.

This is a large stationery store on the 10th floor of the department store adjacent to Kyoto Station. If you arrive at Kyoto Station, this is a very easy place to go.
I'm sorry if there is no nib here. I don't live in Kyoto, so it's a shame that I can't provide reliable information.
However, I think there is a nib in a large art supply store or Tokyo Hands.
I'm sorry I'm not very good at English.
I hope you can buy a nib in Kyoto! Good luck!
