One of my favorite inks. I have it in one of my daily writers. I like the shading. In light it is yellow, in darker parts greenish. Some even see it as brownish.

And one of the most even chromo's I have done so far.

I'm also a big fan of this ink. I've found that the ink looks much greener when wet, turning more yellow with a hint of gold as it dries. Even knowing this behavior, I'm consistently surprised whenever I ink the color up again--"Was this always so green? Oh, wait..." With sporadic usage, I'll probably never get used to the color shift, which makes writing with the ink all the more fun.

Interesting color.  I love the TAG Kyoto inks.

I am polyglot but Japanese is not one of the languages I speak.  :D

The color shift makes it very interesting, and this ink turned out much more readable then I expected. 

The chromo really surprised me, because I expected some complex things, but apparently it is exactly this "simple" composition which makes this ink behave this way.

Other ones are coming up but it can take a while.

The number of ink I have perplexed me...  :D

This ink is very interesting, I’ve fallen for the TAG Kyoto line since I bought my first bottle.
Thank you for the review and for making my want to buy list longer :D

I love this one. It's a very wet ink, and the colour is just like the flowers the ink is named after.

Yes those. Aren't they just beautiful? I saw some near the Eiffel Tower once, and was surprised to find out that they are where the name of this ink comes from.
