The inks are made by Kyo no oto in Kyoto, Japan. The colours are inspired by locations in Japan. The inks are crafted according traditional Japanese dyeing techniques. The kyo-no-oto branded ink comes in five colours:

    • No 01 - Nurebairo (Black) - the name is to represent a women's glossy black hair.
    • No 02 - Imayou-iro (cherry blossom tone)
    • No 0 3 - Kokeiro (moss green)
    • No 04 - Yamabukiiro (gold-brown)
    • No 05 - Aonibi (blue-black)

    • Stone Road of Gion (brown/gold)
    • Soft Snow of Ohara (blue/purple)
    • Flaming Red of Fushimi (red)
