The last and longish review of three great colours to round up the nine inks. I must admit I am over these inks and am glad to be doing the last three, I have so many more bottles of ink to get through.
The Ginza or number 3 line is the oldest subway line in Asia opening in 1927. It has 19 stations and is the 7th most crowded line, running at 168% capacity. Being the oldest line it runs the closest to the surface with many of its stations only being 1 to 1.5 stories under ground. The western end of the line emerges to the surface and enters Shibuya Station located on the third-floor of a building that is located in a depression.
There has been a delay between reviews but here we are with review number 4 of the Tokyo Metro Colors and this will be brief. The two colours today were so insipid and uninspiring I couldn’t bring myself to ink a pen but I am including them here for the sake of completeness of the set of 9 inks.
Review three of the series and this time two inks. Information on how I obtained these inks can be found here.
The Nambuko or number 7 line is one of the newer lines in the metro featuring advanced technology such as fully automated train operation and platform screen doors. All the trains on this line use 6 cars despite the stations being able to take 8. The name literally means South-North line.
Here with are at review number two. The first two inks in the box on metro colours are red and orange and I feel I have reviewed similar recently in Nemosine inks (Aeolis Palus red and Solar Storm) so decided to start at the end and work backwards. Information about how I obtained these inks can be found here.
The last ink in the box is the Fukutoshin Line.
