In 1911 Mr. Kyugoro Sakata, an engineer from the historic naval port of Hiroshima, was introduced to a Fountain Pen brought from England by a sailor friend. He soon became determined to produce finely crafted writing instruments in Japan with the highest specification and writing performance.
Mr. Sakata decided to call the company Sailor Pen in the expectation that the business would expand internationally like the voyages of a sailor.
The company became the first to produce Fountain Pens in Japan and it is still one of the oldest and most renown in the industry.
