Color Traveler is an ink brand from Hiroshima, Japan. Their inks are usually given names related in some way to Hiroshima and Japan.
Takehara is a city located in Hiroshima. With large bamboo forests growing on the outskirts, it is no wonder that Takehara has made bamboo their official tree in 1978. Bamboo is also the official special product of Takehara and it can be found in the city’s insignia. There are also bamboo-related festivals held in Takehara: the Takehara Bamboo Festival in May and the Takehara Shokei-no-michi Candle Festival (where bamboo candles are placed around the historic preservation district) in October.
This is a bright green ink with an average flow. I find this ink easy to clean out of the pen. On Rhodia paper, there is shading, no sheen, no feathering. I also did not notice any bleedthrough except for one spot.
This was written with a TWSBI ECO-T medium nib.
Below are a couple of photos of how it looks when it is written on both sides of the paper.
