No Alternative Show on Sat. Nov. 26th. But... ;)

November 25, 2016

Ehime & Matsuyama Sugoimonohaku 2016On November 26 (Sat) & 27th (Sun), Ehime Prefecture & Matsuyama City will hold a special event called "Ehime & Matsuyama Industrial Festival 2016" to introduce and promote their local products and merchandizes at Shiroyama Park (Literary Castle Park) right in front of the Matsuyama Castle. Over 100,000 people come and visit this event every year, and many local stores, companies exhibit their products and services.

As a part of the event, the Ehime International Agricultural Exchange Association which I attended their international program over 30 years ago, will be hosting a Facebook Live show to promote their international training program in EU & US for young Japanese people. There will be interviews with those who completed their 12 - 15 months overseas programs and share their experiences and thoughts on the programs. These ex-trainees will bring and introduce their agricultural products they grow or sell from their farms at the interview.

The livestream schedule will start from 10 AM to 3 PM JST on both this Sat. & Sun. November 26th & 27th. Come, visit us at the stream, and see how we live in Japan :)

Kyuranger! The Second Wave has Arrived!!

February 14, 2017

Kyuranger!Wow. The first wave of Kyuranger items were massive amount and it was the largest wholesale we ever invested, and most of them went out of stock right after we activated them last Sunday. In the desperate request emails we receive from our customers, we contacted our wholesalers next morning and negotiated with them for more of them. They said they were about to pack them and send them to other shops in Japan but they held them for us and decided to wait for our another order for the 2nd wave before 1 PM JST on Monday, Feb. 13th. I was on my way to Uwajima City for the CSTOYS Toku Wave radio recording from 3 PM JST, but I stopped by at one famous hamburger chain store and was on my laptop computer while biting one of their hamburgers. Figured the how many of each Kyuranger items are needed from our store and typed on emails to our wholesalers and BANG! Hit the return key. Submission completed.
