Hence, the Namiki Shooting Stars Fountain Pen brings good luck and omen to the pen user.

Namiki Yukari Shooting Stars Fountain Pen

Among one of the most breathtaking sights of the night sky, Shooting Stars have been revered with awe and stupefaction.  Commonly known as shooting stars, meteors are caused by the entry of small pieces of rock, dust, or metal from space that hits Earth's atmosphere at an extremely high speed - hence heating up and leaving a trail of light in the sky, which people occasionally see at night.  Using the Fuse-zai-shiki in Togidashi (burnished) Maki-e technique, the shootings stars motif is beautifully captured against a midnight black background, bringing attention to the details.

Among modern Hawaiian-Japanese, it is believed that if a shooting star approaches in one's direction, the collars of the kimono must be opened to admit the good luck.
