Although Ajimin has the flavor of hot metal type, it is not intended to be a revival, but a new typeface for display purposes. Like Bodoni, its vertical strokes are clear and heavy and its horizontal strokes are precise and thin. Its elements possess strength and stability.
Ajimin Modern’s elements are more sharply designed than those of Ajimin – the start and finish of vertical strokes are lowered for increased sharpness, and the horizontal strokes are cut vertically at the start and are thinner with a uniform width. Ajimin Modern is a sharp and elegant Mincho-style typeface.
This typeface is designed to be used in larger type sizes (for posters, for example), although it’s legible in smaller sizes. As the type size increases, the elegance of each stroke element becomes more visible.
Like “Tsukiji-tai”, “Shuei-tai” is one of the most influential typeface styles in the age of hot metal type. Produced by the printing house Shue-sha, later merged with another printing house to form Dainippon Printing, one reason for its popularity may be its idiosyncratic calligraphic style. This typeface design uses three different kana styles from Shuei-tai’s type samples.
Ajimin Modern Syu/EB is a revival of a Futo-Mincho-tai for display in the Shogo size designed by Ryotaro Kawamura.

This font includes top 1,000 kanji characters chosen from character frequency tables made by newspaper companies, publishing houses and linguistic research institutes, plus 206 kana characters and punctuation marks.

Ajimin has the flavor of hot metal type and, like Bodoni, its vertical strokes are clear and heavy and its horizontal strokes are precise and thin. Its elements possess strength and stability. Ajimin is a unique Mincho-style display typeface. Ajimin Modern’s elements are more sharply designed, but that sharpness is balanced by the richness and elegance of the design. Ajimin’s biggest feature is its 10 kana variations, ranging from running-hand-like designs, to revivals of designs from the age of hot metal type, to modern style kana. These variations make Ajimin useful for a wide range of purposes.
