Description:

HOTEISON - God of generosity and marital happiness - Nicknamed the laughing Buddha, Hoteison is unique for being the only monk among these seven. He is assumed to be the incarnation of the Buddhist deity Maitreya Bodhisattva. On the body of the pen, he is presented with a cheerful smile, a plump face and a large belly. On his shoulder, he carries a large canvas bag (Kannin-bukuro), that is said to contain the numerous treasures and blessings he distributes. A mountain scenery completes the beautiful visual imagery. Created by artist Misa.

The 100th anniversary or centenary of the Namiki group is cause for a special celebration. The company mobilised its famous Kokkokai craftsmen to create exceptional limited editions inspired by themes dear to its history and Japanese culture: sea, good fortune and Mount Fuji. It also serves as an homage to its founders Ryosuke Namiki and Masao Wada, two marine engineers united by their native land and passion of navigation.
