Make up and brushes from Japan

Rainy and rugby weekend

Hi Everyone,

Another rain this weekend.
It is not heavily raining, which is good news, but we expect more rain in October.

As for makup brushes,
Hakuhodo’s Canadian squirrel is still not available.
I will let you know when I get updated.

Also, Silver Fox is late, many apologies to those who are waiting and here is a message Chikuhodo sent me.
———————————–
This fox hair is totally new materials in cosmetic brush industry.
We’ve studied this beautiful hair to use our regular products and established its knowhow.
However still it takes longer time compared to other typical hair because of its unique hair characteristics.
In addition, we’ve gotten a lot of orders than we expected so it takes long time to have a stocks now. We are trying to make as many as brush right now but apologize our inconvenience for this issue.


This weekend was a rugby weekend. Japan played a semi-final first time.

I would say Japan is a more baseball country or football (soccer ), but rugby attracts many people now – we call those fans that get fond of sports all of a sudden ‘Niwaka fanにわかファン’. I am a Niwaka fan of rugby as well)

Rugby World Cup teams have many foreign-born players. Japan is no exception. We have players from Korea, New Zealand, South Africa, Fiji, Samoa…. The captain and head coach are Kiwis and most Japanese believe that they are the biggest reasons why Japan is playing at this level.

After Japan lost to South Africa, Thompson, a 38-year old Kiwi who is about to retire, was speaking on the TV, and that interviewer was apparently crying. So were many viewers. My eyes were full of tears so I had to check the internet to confirm I am not the only one, LOL. Many Japanese were moved by his interview. He wanted to express what he felt in Japanese. It is not a language that made people cry.

Maybe the biggest moment in this World Cup for many Japanese.

Now four teams , NZ, England, South Africa and Wales, will play in Yokohama, and I see some seemingly rugby fans from those countries in Tokyo. I hope they also enjoy other ‘Japan’ than rugby.

Thank you for reading.

After the Strong Typhoon

Chikuhodo released Silver Fox brushes in September.

FO 1 and 5, powder and eyeshadow brushes, are currently out of stock, and I was informed by Chikuhodo that they could produce the brushes this weekend.
I will keep you updated, and sorry for the delay to those who have ordered.

——————————————–

Strong typhoon was all over Japan last weekend. Currently, Rugby World Cup is played all over Japan. Those players from 20 countries have experienced the typhoon as well.

Some games were canceled, and players and fans were disappointed but with these damages, that may have not been avoided. Fans’ life is important.

There was a nice story after the typhoon passed and damaged all over. Canadian team helped the city of Kamaishi, a small town in Tohoku, with cleaning the dirt. The news was spread all over Japan, and people were so moved and thankful. They say the champion of Rugby is Canadian team

Sports or travels, I think it great to mingle with local people. Not easy, especially a language barrier. And I think it needs a little bit of courage as well, but most of Japanese people will be happy to meet and talk. Maybe some are too friendly for a language lesson..e.g. a friend of mine has talked to tourists in Tokyo more than 10 times..

Canadian team in Yukata. Yukata can be worn in Ryokan, a traditional Japanese style hotel.

I had a general knowledge of rugby and this time I researched more. I will write more about how Japan team is made of this time. A half of them were foreign-born, in my next newsletter.

One day after the typhoon

Hi Everyone,

A big typhoon hit Japan, directly Tokyo.

I had many messages if I was ok when the typhoon hit Tokyo.
Thank you very much. Some regions had more damages than Tokyo, and more than 60 people died…..

The typhoon hit Tokyo on Saturday night.
It landed Shizuoka first, and moved to Tokyo. Tokyo faces the sea but it is a bay so usually safe from the sea disaster. eg. Tsunami. The Shizuoka sea was wild like this,

Maybe some of you know ‘Hakone’, a hot spring place. Hakone had the heaviest rain this time.

This typhoon brought heavy rain. Very very heavy.
Many rivers in the east were flooded, and houses near those rivers were inundated.

I live near the Tama River, which was also flooded. There were baseball fields next to the river, now they were completely under water. This picture was taken by a friend on Sunday. This place is 20 minutes by bicycle from my place.

As I grew up in Japan, I have been used to typhoons. My father always said, ‘it is a big one this time,’ but mostly, those typhoons turned out to be ‘not so big.’

I was optimistic this time as well. This time, it was BIG. Even Shibuya people were told to move to shelters, but it seemed that people were afraid to move out of houses. Rain was more than expected. The Shibuya Crossing was empty , and no trains.

It was 7pm when it hit Tokyo. Most scary was when an earthquake hit at night. It was gone quickly, but if it was big, that would have caused big damages as people were not able to get out of a house easily

The sky got clear on Sunday. We call it ‘Taifu Ikka.’ (台風一過)that means next day a typhoon passes, very clear sky will come back. This time was no exception. After midnight, the sky was like this.

I will write a part 2 tomorrow,

Thank you for reading,

Toshiya
