Introducing : Tazugane Gothic – a Japanese font with the flair of Neue Frutiger


Developed as the Japanese version of the popular Neue Frutiger by Adrian Frutiger and Akira Kobayashi, Tazugane Gothic™ is a humanist sans with clear and legible forms.

The Tazugane Gothic typeface contains OpenType functions including proportional metrics and kerning. Like the Neue Frutiger typeface, Tazugane Gothic features ten different weights, ranging from Ultra Light to Extra Black, allowing for a broad range of applications.


By not making the individual characters too large, the balance of traditional handwriting taught in schools is preserved, producing a typeface with a distinctly human flavor that supports a sense of stability and readability.
