Now venerated as a god of good fortune, fertility, and marital happiness, Hotei-son is considered to be an incarnation of the Buddhist deity Maitreya Bodhisattva, and is the only deity among the Japanese Seven Gods of Good Fortune believed to have derived its origins from a real person, a monk who lived during China's Tang Dynasty, 618–907 A.D.
The Yukari Namiki Hotei-son depicts this happy deity among the mountains of China. He carries a kannin-bukuro, or patience bag, which is said to contain the blessings and treasures he bestows on others. The exquisite motif is painted by master Maki-e artist Misa Seki of the Kokkokai Collective, who signs her work as Misa.
Besides its appeal as an beautiful work of Maki-e art, the Yukari Hotei-son is also an excellent everyday writing instrument which uses Namiki's convenient cartridge-converter filling system - the pen can fill with any bottled fountain pen ink when fitted with the provided converter, and can also use Pilot brand ink cartridges.
Each pen comes in a bespoke wooden presentation box which includes a bottle of Pilot Iroshizuku Hotei-son Limited Edition ink, as well as a box of ink cartridges. The lid of the presentation box features a laser engraving depicting Mt.Fuji and a treasure ship carrying the gods of good fortune.
Our complimentary nib tuning adjusts pressure and ink flow to your personal preferences, and our optional nib customizations can add to the character and distinctiveness of your writing on the page - but if you are a collector who would prefer to leave the pen unadjusted, just indicate this in your notes during check-out.
