The Battle of Itsukushima was a famous battle fought in 1555 between Motonari Mori and Harukata Sue (two well-known Samurai warlords).

Moris army of 4,000 troops defeated Sues 20,000 men who had been dispatched to attack them from another direction. This special 33 piece Limited edition Maki-e fountain pen commemorating this famous 'Great Surprise' battle is by renowned Urushi artist Ikki Moroike.
