Bungujoshi-haku is Japan’s largest stationery expo. With over 35 000 attendees, it is perhaps also the world’s busiest. Bungujoshi is not just about pens though, but also about notebooks, washi tape, and all kinds of stationery.
This year, the organization behind this mega expo decided to do a smaller spinoff show focused on inks, riding on the current ink trend in Japan. They named it Inku-numa (lit. ink swamp), which is also what ink obsession is called here.
