Usagiya Limited Edition Sailor Fountain Pens

Usagiya (うさぎや) is a stationary retail chain located in Okayama prefecture. Usagiya had produced many popular LE Sailor fountain pens over the years, and they were often sold out within days. Buying from Usagiya as a foreigner is quite tough, as they do not support English, nor do they ship overseas. On top of that, Usagiya operates with a real-name system in order to reduce the amount of LE pens each person can buy, and they do not accept orders made over the phone. The best way of buying from Usagiya is to find a deputy service who lives in Okayama, or is willing to travel there. They also sometimes sell the LE pens on their Rakuten online store. See below for a list of LE Sailor fountain pens Usagiya had released as of October 30th, 2018.
