A Typhoon Strikes the Obon Vacation

A Typhoon Strikes the Obon Vacation

(The following is translation of the e-mail which was sent to Japanese customers.)



How are you doing?


This Obon vacation (Obon is a traditional Japanese event to welcome the spirits of ancestors.), the Japanese archipelago was completely covered by a typhoon, and I sincerely hope that there was no serious damage in your area.

Even in Maebashi, the weather changed rapidly with rain, wind, and thunder, and even when there were sunny intervals, I was not able to go far.

However, it was an important vacation, and in between preparing for the Obon Festival at my parents' house, I went for a walk around Konuma lake at Mt. Akagi, the nearby mountain.

This is a small crater lake surrounded by trees, and there is a beautiful path to walk along the lakeside for about 1 km around, and in late May, azalea (mitsubatsutsuji and shiroyashio) bloom!
At this time of August, only the chirping of birds can be heard, and the quiet lake that reflects the scenery like a water mirror is very beautiful! It has become my favorite place.

It was a little cloudy, but for the first time in a while, I grabbed my camera and took pictures of the mountains reflected on the lakeshore. I am in the middle of a jog, so I am wearing shorts, sorry.

After the exhibition is over, let's spend the day here with a book, a chair, and a beer! I swore in my heart. (lol)

Yes, the exhibition is coming soon. With rapid development, we are going to have new products again! We will exhibit lovely scented accessories. Also, I would like you to see the actual fixtures that we have made.

The new catalog is almost finished and waiting for submission. It is a very exciting time.

Please stop by when you come to the Tokyo Gift Show starting September 6.
The location is East Hall 5, Fragrance Fair T44-16.

It is time to see the red dragonflies, but the midsummer days are expected to return at the end of the week.
The lingering summer heat is expected to continue, so please take care.
