At a fountain pen shop I found by chance.

Hi, I'm Haruyo.

Usually I use a mechanical pencil when I study. It's running out of leads so I was going to buy one during lunch time if there is a stationary shop around our shop. I looked up on google map and found that a stationary shop is close to our shop. It's by the road that I often walk, I wonder if it's there though.

I said "Hi" while entering and then the master came out. Then suddenly he started talking about fountain pens before I would asked something. According to what he said, he is a super famous expert person on fountain pens. Even foreigners visit his shop to buy ones he made or collected. In addition, people who love ones can know how great fountain pens at his shop are.

Oh my god! I just came to buy mechanical pencil leads... hehe.
I shouldn't have been there! I thought I would be able to buy ones at once but he started taking. However I had to keep time for having lunch, I didn't ask something back. I didn't expect that I would come in such a great shop. I don't  know anything at all about fountain pen! 

After I told him that I came here to look for leads, he gave me one free.
Is it free!? No way, I will pay! While I was surprised, he told me it used to be his friend's. His friend gave to him when a shopping center went out of business where his friend's shop was. Later I found out that the lead he gave me is from a super popular stationary company.

Actually I couldn't believe him completely when he talked to me. I looked up online after I was back. Of course he was a super famous person. The review left on the internet says "You should call him before you go since the shop close irregularly." ..Oh, I broke it!

I thanked him with all my heart to tell me about fountain pens who knows nothing about them. It was the world I don't know. I heard there is a fountain pen costs 15 million yen! Amazing...!

I was asked what fountain pens I often use. But my answer is.. "I use a ballpoint pen called jet stream rather than ones", it was true, but I was embarrassed saying that after I heard amazing story of him.

However, I'm looking forward to using the lead he gave me.

Bye!

This sight looks like a scene in a movie.

普段勉強する時はシャーペンを使っているんだけど、そろそろ芯が無くなりそうということで、お昼休みに近くの文房具屋さんに行こうとしたの。
グーグルマップで調べたら、お店からほんのすぐ近くにあって。しかもその通りいつも通ってたから、「文房具屋さんあったっけ?」って思って。行ってみたの。

「こんにちは~」って言いながらお店に入ると、店主が出てきて、いきなり万年筆トークが始まった!笑
とにかく色んな国のお偉い方に万年筆を提供してきた方で、結構有名なんだそう。海外の方も、この方の万年筆を求めにお店まで来るんだって。そして万年筆好きには、お店に置いてる万年筆のすごさが分かるらしい。
シャーペンの芯を買いにきただけの私…笑
完全に場違いだった…!!すぐ買えると思っていたので、まさか話を聞くことになるとは思わず、お昼の時間も確保しなきゃいけなかったから、質問し返さなかったんだけど、まさかこんなにすごいお店に素人の私が入ってしまうとは!笑

シャーペンの芯を買いにきた、ということを伝えると、お店に置いてあるシャーペンの芯を無料でくれた。えええええええ!?無料でいいの!!?え!?!?って驚いていると、元々その芯を販売していた友人からもらったのだそう。

しかも話を聞いているととても有名なメーカーみたい。ドイツのメーカーなんだけど。

実は店主の話を100%信じ切れてなくて、インターネットで調べたら出てきたー!そしてちゃんと有名な方だったぁぁ!
口コミを見ると、お店は不定休で開いているからアポ取ってから行った方がいいとアドバイスが。
私アポなしで行ってしまったよ~~~!!

素人の私に話してくれて感謝しかない。万年筆1本15000万とかで取引されてて、もう私の知らない世界すぎる!!

いつもどんな(万年筆)使っているの?って言われて、「あっいえ、万年筆は使ってなくて、ジェットストリームを使っています」って返した。事実なんだけど、すごい話を聞いたあとに答えるのはなかなか恥ずかしかったである…

でも、頂いたシャーペンの芯を使うのは楽しみ!
