I chatted with Kihitsu. He offered some limited products, which are shown below. Please take a look.
The situation with brush makers, I think, are the same as other companies who are in trouble.
Especially, Hakuhodo has closed shops except for Sapporo.
I can still order Hakuhodo brushes from Sapporo for the time being.
Hiroshima Hakuhodo will reopen a shop on Monday, but now that Hiroshima citizens are ‘requested’ to stay home, they may close it again.
I guess online shops are in trouble as well, but compared to face-to-face shopping, they are performing better.
This corona situation force many people to change their lifestyles.
Maybe more rapidly than the Lehman shock does.
I had a friend working for Lehman, which was located in Roppongi Hills. She seemed to be enjoying both business and private lives.
The next time I talked to her was that she was on the hunt for a job.
Japanese people like the word ‘stable,’ but being stable might make people more exposed to a risk. It is ironic, but people who are willing to change could cope with a risk better.
The number of corona patients is increasing in Japan, and Nagoya was added to the group that declare the state of emergency.
As for mailing to overseas, now Australia is added to those countries that EMS cannot be sent to.
I walked around the neighborhood today.
Two kids were walking happily.
I talked to Kihitsu and here are 2 sets available now.
A set of Saikoho + lip brush + Saikoho Echizen with mini rose as a novelty, which Kihitsu wants to present to cheer up.
Thank you for reading!
