Fude(japanese brush) and sumi(japanese ink)

Speaking of Japanese old writing instruments, it is sumi(japanese ink) and fude(japanese brush).
It is said that a Buddhist priest of Goguryeo conveyed it in 610 AD when the capital was in the central part of Nara.
Goguryeo is the country that was in the northern part of the Korean peninsula.
Thereafter, sumi and fude are maked in Nara.
These were originally maked with temples and monks.
And it came to be manufactured in the private sector from about several hundred years ago.
They are sold in various places, but there are several places around Sanjo-dori street which are sold expertly.
