Mikura Tsuge straight grained Heaped pieces
[By Shozan, Kinki, 3 Kings]

[祥山作・錦旗・王3枚]

 Price : 280,000 JPY

 Product ID:S672

 This natural wood has a candy-colored, slightly hazy appearance. The grain is tight and elegant, and the wood is of a professional quality. The typeface is ordered in a slightly fine and small size to accentuate the quality of the wood. This piece has a calm atmosphere.


Mikura Tsuge straight grained Heaped pieces
[By Shozan, Sofu-Gonomi, 3 Kings]

[祥山作・宗歩好・3王]

 Price : 300,000 JPY

 Product ID:S676

 This is the typeface favored by "Sofu Amano," Kisei of the end of the Edo period. Also known as "Meijin Koma", it is very popular and sells well. To make the tiger striped wood stand out, we chose a somewhat smaller typeface, Sofu-Gonomi. Customers often make fun of the fact that Maruhachi is only selling pieces with large characters, so why not try the popular Sofu-Gonomi with small typefaces once in a while?


Mikura Tsuge tiger striped Heaped pieces
[By Shozan, Shoryusai, 3 Kings]

[祥山作・昇龍斉・3王]

 Price : 350,000 JPY

 Product ID:S677

 Shoryusai is a normal typeface preferred by everyone. Shoryusai, a shamisen player of the Meiji era, is believed to be the author of this typeface, but it is also really popular, as Ikkyo Okuno named this typeface Okuno-Kinki. This time, we had it made in tiger striped wood. The artist, Shozan, is an obsessive and studious person, especially when it comes to the study of the typefaces. This time, he used a powerful and somewhat large typeface. We are happy to see his work gaining popularity.


Satsuma Tsuge lightning figured Heaped pieces
[By Shozan, Maki-Ryoko, 3 Kings]

[祥山作・巻菱湖・王3枚]

 Price : 400,000 JPY

 Product ID:S675

 I am in love with Shozan's Maki-Ryoko. I had it made with perfectly patterned, dark-colored Satsuma wood. The photo shows two Kings, but it is a piece set of three Kings.


Mikura Tsuge tiger striped Heaped pieces
[By Shozan, Kiyoyasu]

[祥山作・清安書]

 Price : 400,000 JPY

 Product ID:A253

 This is the owner's favorite Kiyoyasu calligraphy of the Eisui style. It is made of specially selected wood with tiger stripe, and has a somewhat fine writing finish. The technique of heaping up is perfect, and the result is not only beautiful but also gorgeous and graceful. The final polish is not shiny, but rather a subdued finish, which will become more and more attractive as you use it more and more.
