The origin of the brand name “Izumo”
Japan has its pride in its four distinct seasons. All with an intent to live in harmony with nature while creating and developing a rich culture with the beliefs in the presence of gods in nature. Since the dawn of time, it has been believed that the gods reside in all things and that there is a common ground where the gods throughout Japan gather together once a year. This is “Izumo” a great influence over the structure of Japan and the heart of its people thus contributing to the prosperity of the city. The word “Izumo” which expresses the many-layered cloud formations rising vigorously to the sky, had been handed down to the present day. “Izumo” also expresses the idea of progress and creation. Based on such an idea, Platinum Pen created a highly original luxury writing instruments brand named “Izumo” with the best intent of expressing the wonderful Japanese traditional art and the quality material, which are the culture we want to pass on to the future generation. The company founder Shunichi Nakata was born in Izumo city, the the city in Shimane prefecture in Japan where “Izumo Taisha” Shurine is. The magnificent influence of nature and a mysterious history exist. Derived from such fact, Platinum created “Izumo” series with the best wishes of obtaining the momentum of clouds rising to the heaven.
