Juro-jin, also known as “the Old Man of the South Pole”, is a Chinese Taoist god. Said to be the incarnation of the southern polar stars, Juro-jin is believed to be the patron god of wealth and longevity.
On this fountain pen, a smiling Juro-jin is depicted holding a cane on which has been pinned a scroll. He is dressed in a peach-patterned Kimono, and is accompanied by a deer, both familiar symbols of long life.
The purple ink echoes the color of the Juro-jin’s Kimono, depicted on the fountain pen.
This Namiki Seven Gods Yukari fountain pen was produced by maki-e artisan Seika Chida for Pilot’s 100th anniversary.
