"Creating a joyful writing opportunity"
Our wish is to create a joyful opportunity for those who want to write by hand to make it part of their daily life.
This is the idea that inspired us to organize a collaborative workshop between the Kuramae stationer Kakimori and Nohga Hotel, "Write a letter to a loved one with a fountain pen".

Kakimori is a dedicated stationery retailer that has an abiding passion for writing with well-designed, practical stationery, even as opportunities to write dwindle.
Nohga Hotel Ueno has original fountain pens in three colors of ink.
For this event, Kakimori will run a seminar entitled, "How to express your wishes in a letter".

The stationery used will be fountain pens and ink.
A fountain pen may seem difficult to use for those who are not used to it, but friendly guidance on how to write beautifully with a fountain pen and its maintenance will be provided.

It may be hard to change the way you write in an instant, but by observing a few points you should be able to write much more neatly.

Those not used to writing letters, or those without the confidence to write are equally welcome.
Why not take on the challenge of the fountain pen with us?


The event will feature autumnal inks selected by staff of Inkstand, the ink retailer behind Kakimori.

Your favorite autumn color, the autumn color from that special time, your autumn memories with the recipient of the letter.
Express yourself with the ink that captures the fall season you are thinking of.
Take your pick, we have plenty of colors available.


Take home the fountain pen and ink you use in the workshop as souvenirs of the day, so why not write a letter to someone who matters, maybe someone at home? (Image for illustrative purposes only)

Workshop participants will be served Nohga Hotel's favorite coffee.


Our original blend is a collaboration with the famous Kabuki coffee shop of Torigoe, Taito Ward and is only available here at Nohga Hotel.
Every cup is carefully hand-drip brewed.
Enjoy the changing flavour profile of the coffee from morning to evening, as the roast and the bean ratio are adjusted to the time of day.

As you sip a nice coffee and write your letter in a different space from the everyday routine, you may find yourself able to express your feelings in words that had hitherto escaped you.

This is your chance to express your thoughts to someone special.
Please join us.
