We’re yearning for spring weather with Bungubox Tsuyuhikari.
Bungubox Tsuyuhikari is a bright pear lime color that screams for long days and warm weather. The ink is produced by Sailor, and comes in the same 50ml glass bottle. It is accompanied by a square box that has some lovely embossing displaying the Bungubox name and its inkwell logo. This review was done with a Pilot Vanishing Point F, Lamy Safari B and on Rhodia blank No.18 paper.
If you had to describe Tsuyuhikari in one word it would be cheerful. The light green color just puts a smile on your face. The ink is a decent shader and displays the same range of color in both a fine and broad nib. The lightest areas of the ink are a bright lime chartreuse that shade into a pear green. The darkest shade the ink achieves is a ferny olive, although I didn’t experience any issue with readability.
Bungubox inks enjoy the same great properties as Sailor inks. Tsuyuhikari had good flow with no feathering or bleedthrough on Rhodia paper. The ink had good dry times at 20-25 seconds. There was no water resistance, which made clean up easy.
If you’re looking for a cheerful ink to get you through the last months of winter then give Tsuyuhikari a try. Although it’s a lighter color, you won’t have any trouble reading it. Or use it for InCoWriMo and put a smile on someone’s face.
As with any ink review, the pen, paper, and person doing the writing will influence the way the ink looks. If you’re not sure about a color, try a sample to see if it’s the one for you.
