This ink was named after the Seto Inland Sea next to Hiroshima Prefecture. From the name, you might have thought that it is a landlocked sea but that’s not the case. It is a body of water separating three of the four main islands of Japan and serves as a waterway connecting the Pacific Ocean to the Sea of Japan.
As the name says, this is a dark blue-black ink. There is a tinge of purple that shows up in certain lighting and papers. Despite the dark colour, this ink is easy to clean out of the pen. It has a wet flow.
