Japanese Kanji Type Typewriter. Seems to be in good working order. This kind of machine faded away in the late 80's as word processors like the Toshiba Rupo and others hit the marketplace. It must have exhausting typing a letter. In its journey from Japan to California all of the 'striker pins' fell out of their slots (all 2,205 of them). To date I have gotten approximately 217 placed. I will get them placed eventually but it will take some time.

I am an avid typewriter enthusiast with currently over one hundred (100) typewriters in my collection (and growing). I am a proud TWDB Patron. I have also collected vintage briefcases (mostly Hartmann) Movie Cameras (8mm & 16mm) and many Fountain Pens. I am the author of the novella 'Killer on the Canvas'. I am also a big Don Quixote fan. I make my home in Southern California.
My Typewriter manufacture dates currently range from 1883 to 1996.
